The UBC Apple Market is live!
Many beloved events have been reimagined this year due to the ongoing pandemic, including the UBC Apple Festival. This Fall, the Friends of the UBC Botanical Garden have turned the UBC Apple Festival into the UBC Apple Market, an online shop featuring favourite varieties of apples, trees, juice and more.

Purchase online. Select your date/time when ordering. Pick-up at UBC Botanical Garden.
Online orders can be placed at any time, with on-site timed pick-ups at UBC Botanical Garden between October 16-18. Our address is 6804 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver, BC, V6T 1Z4.
Even during a pandemic, there are plenty of ways to celebrate one of our province’s most beloved fruits. This year’s apple selection will focus on festival favourites, including:
- Aurora Golden Gala
- Cox’s Orange Pippin
- Red Fuji
All apples this year are organic.
For the home gardeners, 30 varieties of apple trees grown by our local growers will be available to enhance your garden. Delicious juice will be available, and for those curious about local apples, The Apples of the Apple Festival booklet will also be for sale.
UBC Apple Festival has been supporting BC growers for 29 years and is grateful to everyone who helps to keep our pantries stocked. For many of us, this year has been tough, and this is especially true for those who grow our food. While we are not able to host a festival safely this year, at this unprecedented time we want to continue to support and show our gratitude for local growers and their families by showcasing BC’s apples.
Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting us throughout the years. While not the same as previous years, we hope UBC Apple Market will foster love and taste for apples this Fall, from home, for all.
