West End – June 27

Thinking about going to the beach?

It’s going to be a hot weekend and if your thinking about going to the beach stop by the market before you do. You’ll be happy you did when you return home after a long day with a fridge fill of fresh local food. We even have great snacks to take with you – baskets of berries, cherries and even apricots make for a refreshing snack on a hot day.

If you’re thinking of a summer BBQ, we’ve got Geldermans quality pork and Blue Comets fresh sockeye salmon along with lots of colourful veggies that will grill up nicely.

Want to cool down while you’re at the market? We’ve got tasty popsicles that will do just that – look for the Johnny’s Pops bicycle cart.
