This Week @ Hastings Park Jan 10
What’s at the Market
It’s the peak of winter and there is still a wide selection of local produce available at our winter farmers market including apples, kale, squash, potatoes, carrots, turnips, cabbage, pears and much more. Say hi to our farmers Klippers Organic Acres, Shalefield Organic Gardens, Crisp Organics and Snowy Mountain Organics this week at Hastings Park.
Get involved by volunteering at the markets! We are looking for Market Hosts at Hastings Park – for more information, please visit our website here.
We also just launched a job board Facebook page with job opportunities with our vendors from various markets. This space is for farmers and other farmers market vendors to post jobs related to the markets! Feel free to invite anyone that may be interested,
- January 17th – CSA Fair @ Hastings Park: this is one of our most favourite farm-focused events! Help support local farmers and keep agricultural land in production by signing up for a CSA on January 17th. What’s a CSA you ask? CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture” – CSA’s help give farmers a sense of financial security while providing a great way to get to know the farmer that grows your food! Check out our CSA Box Program page for more information.
- February 7th-29th – Food Truck February: we’ll be doubling the number of food trucks in February for our annual Food Truck February. This year we’re challenging our food trucks to go beyond zero waste and reduce their packaging. More details coming soon!
- February 21st – February Food Swap @ Hastings Park: swap your homemade goodies with other neighbourhood foodies in the February Food Swap at Hastings Park. Only RSVP’d swappers may participate – stay tuned for the link to RSVP!
