Main St. Station – Aug. 13

Join us this week on August 13th for the Main St. Station Farmers Market in Thornton Park from 3-7pm!

Share with your neighbours this month! We are collecting donations on behalf of the Farmers Market Nutrition Coupon Program. This initiative of the BC Association of Farmers Markets provides coupons to lower-income expectant mothers, families, and seniors to access local produce, meat and dairy at the markets. Visit the Info Booth to make a donation and share the wealth!

As we cruise into mid-August, a beautiful abundance of tomatoes, garlic, corn, zucchini, cabbage, cauliflower, beans, eggplant, peppers, fresh herbs, and more will be available from your favorite growers.

Summer tree fruits will continue to sweetly dazzle your senses as the best BC peaches, apricots, nectarines and cherries come to you at the Main St Station Farmers Market.
