Yaletown – June 11

We’ve got lots going on this Thursday at the Yaletown Farmers Market. Join us between 2pm and 6pm for another beautiful sunny market day. Rumor last week was we might see the first of the seasons cherries this week, arriving at the market about two weeks earlier than expected! You’ll have to come down and see for yourself and while your there, here is some more excitement to expect:
