West End Opening Day – May 27th
The West End Farmers Market is coming back to the 1100 block of Comox St. at Nelson Park this Saturday for another summer season, and we are celebrating its 20th Birthday! It seems like only yesterday that this small community market started up in the parking lot of Lord Roberts Elementary, but we’ve come a long way. Join us at noon for cake and speeches from special guests to celebrate 20 years of bringing fresh local fruits, vegetables, cheese, fish, eggs, meats, baked goods, artisan foods and crafts and more to a loyal, loving and enthusiastic community every week of the summer! Bring memories and pictures to share!
Make sure to check out: Warmerdam Flowers for some colourful tulips, Ice Cap Organics for some spicy radishes and Humblebee Meadery for some mead – an alcohol derived from fermented honey!
Produce: Arugula, beets, chives, cress, cucumbers, garlic scapes, green onions, head lettuce, kale, mizuna, onions, parsnips, peppers, radishes, rhubarb, salad mix, snap peas, snow peas, spinach, swiss chard, tomatoes, zucchini
Meat, Seafood, Dairy, Poultry: Beef, Cheese, Chicken, Duck, Eggs, Pork, Turkey
