This Week at Hastings Park – March 13

Spring has Sprung at Hastings Park

This week we’re excited to bring fresh, certified organic herbs to the market including cilantro, basil, bay leaves, parsley, thyme, sage, savory, oregano, mint, and marjoram from Lowland Herb Farm.  They also are bringing plants and seedlings, just in time for Spring! To add to the spring excitement, Bryan and Agnes Warmerdam will be bringing fresh cut daffodils from their farm in Abbotsford. Looking for a sweet treat?
