Mount Pleasant Market-August 23rd
It promises to be another beautiful day at the Mount Pleasant Market this Sunday! Come pick up your weekly groceries-eggs, greens, loads of tomatoes, pastries and bread, plums and peaches and more!
Two great contests going on right now!
Salt Spring Coffee is offering you the chance to get up close and personal with local farmers, and the tasty stuff they grow! You could be rewarded with great prizes like foodie events, CSA shares and great coffee to name a few! Pick up your scavenger hunt postcard at the information booth. Get all the details here!
While we don’t have a Tomato Festival at Mount Pleasant Market, there is a way we can get involved. Take a photo of the weirdest, craziest tomato you find at the markets this week and give it the hashtag: #inglorioustomato. You’ll have a chance to win $20 of Market Money just for taking a picture. All details here!
Our annual RIPE celebration takes place on October 18 in Yaletown at the Roundhouse Exhibition Hall. Less than 30 early bird tickets are left, get yours quick! Check our RIPE event page for all the details!
Food Scraps Drop Spot is Wrapping Up August 30th
With the recent Metro Vancouver Organics Ban, the Drop Spots are seeing fewer drops – which is a good thing! More buildings have implemented food scraps collections, allowing residents to dispose of their food waste at home. If your building doesn’t have organics collections just yet, contact our program partner Recycling Alternative (604-874-7283) or the City of Vancouver (3-1-1) for recycling collection options. The last day for the Drop Spot at Trout Lake is on Saturday, August 29th.
