This week at Trout Lake – July 25
Plums, glorious plums!
We love seeing the first and most delicious of the produce grown in BC at the Trout Lake Farmers Market. Sapo Bravo had organic plums last week that literally burst in your mouth! They’re perfect on top of breakfast granola, in a zesty salad or popped in whole in the middle of the afternoon. This week, look out for Forrest Nelson and his unbeatable nectarines…

Vancouver Farmers Market day: July 29
That’s right. We have our very own day. On July 29, 1995, approximately 500 eager Vancouverites descended upon 8 skeptical farmers and 14 craft people – they sold out within a couple hours. Word traveled quickly – the second week, there were twice as many farmers and 800-1200 people were attending on a weekly basis. The market ran for 11 weeks and generated almost $40,000 in sales. Come celebrate the official proclamation at the Main St Station Farmers Market this Wednesday! (Read more)
See you at the market!
