Every Wednesday between 3 and 7pm, local vendors take over Pacific Central station’s parking lot, hawking the usual fresh, local, and kitschy fare.

I had to stop by everyone’s favourite local ice creamery for a salted caramel ice cream waffle cone straight from Earnest Ice Cream and owners Ben Ernst and Erica Bernardi.

After the market closes, head down the block to Campagnolo. The restaurant has partnered with VFM to feature fresh ingredients from the market in their special Market Wednesdays menu every week, but you probably already read all about it HERE.
