Farm Tour

This past week our market team was lucky enough to visit Shalefield Organic Gardens in the Columbia Valley. We toured the 10-acre farm and got to see first hand where all the delicious berries, greens, tomatoes and cucumbers grow! Stop by their stall this week to see what made it to the market and for a taste of this biodynamic farm.

For photos of the visit to Shalefield Organic Gardens, as well as to Fresh Quality Produce and Warmerdam Flowers, see our Facebook album.
