This week at Trout Lake – August 15

Tomato Festival Poster 2015

Oh, we are full of tomatoes!

‘Tis the season, dear friends, so let’s jump right in and celebrate! Pay attention to our Facebook page and Twitter feed this week, because we’ll be featuring a tomato recipe a day. Come to the Trout Lake and Kitsilano Farmers Markets next weekend and you can pick up 10 more. (Some of you clever folk might pick up on the fact that we’re featuring 20 recipes in honour of our 20th Anniversary).

#Inglorioustomato Contest

We’ve got an assignment for you: Instagram a picture of the weirdest, wonderful-est tomato you find at the markets this week and give it the hashtag: #inglorioustomato. If we like yours the best, we’ll give you $20 of Market Money for your efforts!

Don’t miss these vendors:

  • Wenger Sheep Farm: Brigitte and Henry come all the way down from Williams Lake to bring their delightful lamb to Trout Lake and Kitsilano Farmers Markets. They are only coming a few times this fall – make sure to say hello and place your orders!
  • Picked for You: Matthew is back every other week with his beans and garlic – ask him for planting advice and pick some up for eating!
  • Wild Foraged: We just added Stephanie to the schedule because she says she’s got lots of “cool” mushrooms. Check it out and be sure to ask her for cooking and preparation tips – she is a wealth of information!

NEXT WEEK: Tomato Festival – August 22!

This is our oldest and favourite festival where we get to put all the tomatoes available at the market on display! Check out our event page, join our event on Facebook, or simply put Saturday, August 22 in your calendar to join the fun!

See you at the market!
