Kin’s Farm Market re-opening in Abbotsford in 2020

Popular grocery store chain moving from South Fraser Gate to Highstreet Shopping Centre

A Canadian-owned grocery store chain will soon have a new home in Abbotsford.

Kin’s Farm Market, which had operated for several years at the South Fraser Gate complex on Trethewey Street, is moving to Highstreet Shopping Centre in 2020.

There is now a sign located outside a storefront nearby the Highstreet London Drugs sharing the news.

The announcement was originally made back in Aug. 2018 in a Facebook post by Highstreet. In that update it stated that the market would be opening in Spring 2019. It’s unclear why the delays have occurred.

An Abbotsford realtor also posted a video back in March re-iterating the moving of the store, speculating that the store would be operational by June.

Kin’s Farm Market was originally founded in 1983 by Kin Wah and Kin Hun Leung. The business began as an eight-foot long produce table on Granville Island. Due to its popularity the duo launched its first permanent location in Richmond in 1987.

The second store opened in Ladner in 1990, Brentwood Mall in Burnaby in 1992 and then West Vancouver’s Park Royal Shopping Centre in 1994. Today there are 29 locations across British Columbia. The current locations closest to Abbotsford are in Chilliwack and Langley.

A specific date for the opening of the new location in Abbotsford has not yet been set.
