Trout Lake – Sept 6

It’s canning season! We’ve been trollying boxes of tomatoes, peaches and cucumbers for the past couple weeks, not to mention fragrant bunches of dill, the beginnings of apples and onset of winter squash! This season is what farmers markets were made for. Got a heavy load? Ask at the Info Booth about our Grocery Valet service.

Don’t miss these vendors:

  • Bedrock Farms: Mary only comes once a year and this is her last! Mary says: “Beginning with this rocambole type of garlic in 1973, I have enjoyed sharing the bulb of premium-flavor & health-giving qualities with many. I happily pass the garlic torch onto the younger generation of farmers as this season ends. It also behooves me to encourage & wish backyard gardeners to grow their own too.”
  • Bamboletta Dolls: Christina and her team of entrepreneurial moms handcraft dolls with all-natural materials and a whole lot of love!
  • Maison Cote: JP has some of the most flavourful vinegars, salts, seasonings and rubs you’ll find on the West Coast. Perfect for a gourmet BBQ!
