Trout Lake – June 20

It’s Salmon Celebration!

We’re celebrating the return of salmon season and the fact that we can now enjoy fresh salmon direct from fishers at farmers markets! Enjoy salmon-themed food truck creations, pick up a fresh, whole salmon caught in Barkley Sound, learn how to can, smoke and fillet salmon at home and more!

Ocean Wise and Salmon-Safe BC will be onsite to talk about their programs and how YOU can support salmon in BC by making salmon-friendly choices at the farmers market

The Info Booth has moved!

We received direction from Parks to move our container and porta-potties this week. Come find our Info Booth in the middle of the market and look for the porta-potties on the east side by the Food Trucks (Curious? Find video footage from the move on @VFM_Laura Instagram and Twitter feeds)
