Trout Lake – August 30

Wow – what a wonderful celebration of tomatoes last week! We had over 50 varieties on display and sampled everything from purple tomatillos from Harvey’s Orchards to San Marzanos from Stoney Paradise. Congratulations to Ryo Guava for winning our Inglorious Tomato Instagram contest too!

Here are some vendors to look out for this week:

  • Pasta Famiglia: this week is Pasta Boy Peter’s last time at the farmers market – if you’re a pasta-believer, pick up one of the last bags you’ll be able to get and toss it with some fresh heirloom tomatoes for dinner.
  • Pottery by Dave & Family: Dave makes all his glazes from scratch and fires his pottery in Abbotsford in a kiln he built on his old friend Herman’s rural property. This is his first visit to Trout Lake – check him out!
  • Wild Foraged: Stephanie comes with delectables from the wilds of BC and has all kinds of tips and tricks for how to prepare them. Never cooked with wild mushrooms? She’ll tell you exactly what you should do

Share With Your Neighbours: this is our last week to raise funds to help send lower-income families and seniors to the farmers market. You can donate online or drop a token (we accept cash too) in the bucket at the Info Booth. Thanks for your support!

Poetry WebFarmer Appreciation Week: In honour of Farmers Appreciation week Sept 8-15, we’re celebrating BC Farmers and showing our appreciation for the fresh, local food they provide!
