Alex McCarthy has been at most New West Farmers markets since opening season. Often you will find him at the A Bread Affair stall at Tipperary Park on Thursdays. As a active market vendor, he can be a valuable viewpoint when discussions of market policies have an interest in vendor feedback. Born in Ontario on a family farm, Alex moved to BC in 2008. He is a Team Leader in his family firm, responsible for the Granville Island Front of House team and oversees the bakery’s farmers market programme. Alex is 22 years old and lives in Vancouver.
