West End – August 30

Join us this Saturday at the West End Farmers Market for the best of what’s in season! The market makes the perfect stop to stock up on fresh local snacks before starting your long weekend adventures. This week we will see nectarines and the first coronation grapes of the season!

AND…If you haven’t tried the redheart plums yet, they are a must! These plums are sweet and juicy and the perfect snack for walking around the market! They have the WOW factor if you ask Lauren at Snowy Mountain Organics.

Share with Your Neighbours: Thanks for your help so far – this is our last week left in our campaign to raise money to send low-income families and seniors to the farmers market. You can add an extra token to your market money purchase at the Information Booth or donate online!
