SURREY — Zaklan Heritage Farm markets are under way in Surrey.

The markets are running Saturdays throughout the summer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 13278 84th Ave., Newton.

The Zaklan family has been farming their land in Newton for more than 80 years. The fresh fruits and vegetables are produced without the use of synthetic chemicals and are fuelled by organic compost and sustainable soil. There are also nearly 100 laying hens at the farm and their diets are free of corn, soy, and GMO products.
