Hastings Park Pop-Up Market

Find tasty items like vegan and gluten-free baking, fresh tempeh, authentic Mexican tortillas (make sure to get a sample!!), organic oats, fire-roasted hot sauces and more! Check it out and let us know what you think! Who should we invite back? Vote for your favourite vendors at the Info tent!

Donation Station

We’re excited to partner with Farm to School BC to collect donations of cash or produce for select school recipients. Farm to School programs bring healthy, local and sustainable food into schools and provide students with hands-on learning opportunities that foster food literacy, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing school and community connectedness.

This week’s recipient is the Intergenerational Landed Learning Project at UBC Farm who will be collecting donations for their “Local Eating through the Winter” farm visits. Stop by their stall to learn more about the important work they are doing for our regional food system through education and research.

Mark your Calendar:

CSA Fair – Next week, January 21 & 22, we’re featuring vendors who offer Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) programs during the growing season.
