Green & Leafy Festival – May 14

We had a beautiful sunny market last week as we launched VFM’s 20th anniversary season, thanks to everyone that came out. The excitement doesn’t stop there; join us this week as we celebrate the bounty of greens available this spring at our second annual Green & Leafy Festival!

It’s easy to find and eat delicious greens in our rainforest climate. Learn about the benefits of eating and juicing greens as well as how to grow your own at home.

We’ll have a wheatgrass juicing demo and samples, green smoothies, seasonal recipes, microgreens, salad greens, starter plants and more!

In celebration of our 20th birthday, play our Stalk 20 Greens scavenger hunt and get entered to win! With the market packed full of greens it wont be hard to find 20 green vegetables this week. Prizes include market money gift certificates as well as limited edition market swag! Stop by the info tent to play!
