Meridian Farm Market Maple Ridge – Update

The latest news on what’s next for our family business!

It’s been said before that there’s one thing that can be expected when you build something….  It will take longer than you planned.  This DEFINITELY rings true for our new Meridian Farm Market building at the corner of 227th and Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge!  Despite good planning and the best intentions of our trusty general contractor, N. Wallace Contracting, our construction project has experienced many delays due to unforeseeable circumstances these past few months, which has pushed our completion schedule back from Fall.  However, there is good news…  We can now say with certainty, we will be opening this spring!

 

Meridian Farm Market Maple Ridge will be opening for business in May 2016.

 

Construction is moving at fast speed now.  In the coming weeks wall finishes, doors and equipment installations will take place, and the surrounding rock and rubble will be transformed into a spacious and easily accessible parking lot.  Upstairs, the office spaces are being constructed at the same pace, in fact, we hope to have our head office moved and operational on the second story in March sometime while the finishing details get completed on the main retail floor below. Many have enquired about the “For Lease” signs posted around the property – 2400 sqft of prime second story office space will be rented by a tenant (Still to be selected.  If interested, click here.)

 

Here are some pictures of the progress!

So I have just made my third trip from Richmond to Tsawwassen to shop at your Farm Market. Great store and great prices. PLEASE come to Richmond!!
There is rumour of opportunity for a new grocery store at the corner of Moncton and 4th Ave. Sure hope it’s you guys.

Meridian Meats says:

Thank you Sharon for your kind comments, greatly appreciated.
At this point in time we do not have plans to open in Richmond, but hopefully in the future.
Thank you for your continued support 🙂

Just came back from a ringette tournament in North Van, watching a granddaughter play. Our daughter and granddaughter found your market, and took my husband and me back the next day. They were also planning on stopping there one more time before going home. We were all so impressed with your store – the fresh produce, meats and deli selection, and the prices. We all took things home with us (peppered salmon bites!). We will most certainly make a point of stopping there whenever we are in Vancouver.
