The Yaletown Farmers Market – September 17
It’s Farmers Appreciation Week!
The sixth annual Farmers Appreciation Week is here! Let’s all show our appreciation to BC farmers and celebrate BC agriculture and local food! We’ll be showing our appreciation with a treat station at the info tent, where our farmers can enjoy refreshments all day long. Show your support by donating to the treat station, buying your favourite farmer a treat directly, or even telling them how much you appreciate what they do! These farmers make it possible for us to eat the best local, nutritious food there is! They feed us!
Don’t forget the Salt Spring Coffee Edible scavenger hunt continues and ties in so well with Farmers Appreciation Week. Check off that “hug or shake hands with a farmer” checkbox this week – a great way to show your appreciation! Pick up a scavenger hunt postcard at the market information tent, Solefood tent or download it here. Snap photos along the way and tag them #fairtofarmer, each photo tagged is an entry for great prizes. You’ll be entered for some great prizes like foodie events (including our very own RIPE celebration in Yaletown), CSA shares and great coffee to name a few! All details here.
Did you get a chance to participate in our market surveys last week? Look for our survey tent this week to get your say! This is a great chance for us to learn about you and for you to tell us what you’d like to see at the market! Plus, who doesn’t like playing with fun stickers?
Did you attend the memorable evening of local food, craft beverage, live music and farmer love last year? Our Ripe event returns to the Yaletown Roundhouse this October! Check our RIPE event page for all the details, including participating chefs and farms! This is one farm-to-table experience you don’t want to miss!
See you at the market!
