What comes to mind when you think about the fall season? Changing leaves, crisp air, shorter days, lots of rain, and of course…cranberries. Cranberry desserts, cranberry sauce, cranberry scented candles, oh my!
We’re lucky in Metro Vancouver to have access to some of the best cranberry products, harvested right from the source. Here’s a list of where you can enjoy cranberry season in the Fraser Valley.

Run, don’t walk! Fort Wine Co.’s Cranberry Wine varietals are a fan favourite for cranberry lovers–their stock sells out quickly. Still available is their flagship Cranberry Wine: “With its beautiful blush colour and tart taste, Cranberry Wine is the perfect wine to accompany festive meals include turkey, duck, pork or lamb.”
Glover Road, Fort Langley
Transit: The closest bus is the 562 Langley Ctr, get off at EB 96 Ave @ Glover Rd.
Get your full seasonal cranberry fix, all in one place. The Fort Langley Cranberry Festival is happening October 9, 2021 from 10 AM – 4 PM.

2021 is lauded to be another bountiful, and successful cranberry season, and tickets are now available for those who want to see it for themselves! From late September through October, enjoy the cranberry harvest at The Bog in Langley. Book a Harvest Walk or Self-Guided tour for the whole family, and purchase some cranberries and other farm-to-table products, just in time for Canadian Thanksgiving.
If you’re up for it, The Bog recommends adding a Cranberry Plunge to your trip! Suit up with a pair of farm waders, and sweeten up your Instagram feed with a stunning photo in a field of cranberries.
