The first Nat Bailey of 2016!
Happy New Year!
We’re back at Nat Bailey this Saturday after taking a week off for the holidays, find us in the same place, at the same time (Nat Bailey Stadium, 10am-2pm). Whether your 2016 resolution is to buy more local, reduce your food miles, eat healthier or eat more organic – the farmers market is the perfect place to start the New Year off right!
We’re kicking off the New Year with Member Appreciation Day! Membership helps provide core funds to Vancouver Farmers Markets, the registered non-profit, that creates thriving community spaces like the Nat Bailey Farmers Market. MAD is our way or saying ‘thanks’ to our member community for their support all year long. Keep an eye out for the rainbow member special signs or ask your favourite farmer if they have a member special. Don’t forget your member card!
