make. bake. grow. gather. A new way to connect with your food & community.
The Downtown Chilliwack Community Market takes place Sundays from 10am to 2pm, from May 28th to October 15th, on the traditional and unceded territory of the Stó:lō Peoples.
Our market of local growers, gatherers, bakers, crafters and makers is a space where new relationships can form and thrive around those offerings, connecting the people of Chilliwack with quality food and goods.
As part of the Downtown Chilliwack Farmer’s Market family, you can expect a friendly community environment, marketing support, and boundless enthusiasm.
DCCM is an inclusive space and works towards achieving accessibility for all.
