Matsqui is a rural farming neighbourhood with quaint residential dwellings spaced out. It truly gives that small-town feeling while still living near the city of Abbotsford. The District Municipality of Matsqui and Abbotsford officially merged in 1995 to form the new city of Abbotsford. Before that, the area was Matsqui but is now considered Abbotsford West and Clearbrook. With just over 2,000 residents, this rural neighbourhood is on the North end of Abbotsford and relies heavily on the agriculture industry. It is well known for its large areas of spacious farmland. Matsqui is considered a bottomland and was said to have been formed by the annual spring flood of heavy rain that swept through the Fraser River. The floodplain was then dyked, and in early 1900, it was converted to abundant farmland. The Fraser River Salish language Halkomelem is where the name Matsqui comes from, meaning "stretch of higher ground."
Being so close to acres of farmland means fresh, locally grown produce. Wong Farms is a popular spot for some of the freshest produce in town, which specializes in fresh items such as green and red cabbage, pumpkins, squash, corn, and other vegetables.
