Market Challenge!

We challenge you this Thursday and for the rest of September to really get to know your farmer and your farmers market! This challenge comes in the form of a scavenger hunt – so get ready for some fun!

Here’s what you need to do:

Pick up a scavenger hunt postcard at the market info tent, the Salt Spring Coffee tent or download it here

Complete the tasks on postcard:

  1. Hug or shake hands with a farmer
  2. Get your face painted
  3. Try an heirloom fruit or vegetable
  4. Find something organic that is sold in a jar
  5. Surprise someone with a bunch of sustainable flowers
  6. Take home some farm fresh eggs
  7. Buy a pastry or bread from an artisan baker
  8. Bring home a new type of cheese

Don’t forget to snap some photos along the way and tag them #fairtofarmer

Drop off any completed cards at the info tent, the Solefood Farms stall, or mail directly to Salt Spring Coffee

You’ll be entered for some great prizes like foodie events (including our very own RIPE celebration), CSA shares and great coffee to name a few! More details here

Have fun!

Pop Up Yoga

Our friends at Dharma Yoga Vancouver will be joining us with a pop up yoga class! The 1 hour pop up yoga will start at 4:30pm in the Bill Curtis Square, don’t forget your yoga mat (& shopping bag). The market will be open from 2-6pm so you’ll have plenty of time to do your shopping too!
