This Sunday at Mount Pleasant Market-Sept 13th
Farmer Appreciation Week!
September 12th-19th, is the 6TH annual Farmers Appreciation Week where we celebrate BC farmers, agriculture and local food!
Markets around the province will be holding special events to honour farmers. We’re showing our appreciation for those who grow and harvest the food we eat by providing our hard working farmers with refreshments all day. To show your support, we’ll have a donation bin to help buy a farmer a coffee and some treats. Feel free to thank a farmer directly and tell them you appreciate them!
And are you a poet and you didn’t know it? Show your love for farmers with BC Farmers’ Markets’ Ode To A Farmer poetry contest! Win $150 to spend at your favourite BCAFM farmers’ market. Deadline is September 13. Enter here: http://bit.ly/1K9nDyk#BCFarmersWeek
We want to know what you think! Stop by the Information tent this Sunday (and every Sunday in September) and tell us why you shop at farmers markets.
