What’s Fresh at Main St Station – Sep 14
We <3 BC Farmers!
This week we’re celebrating our local food growers with Farmers Appreciation Week! We have coffee and treats with donations from The Smallflower and Yellow Basket Baking to show our farmers some love. Want to show us how much you love your local farmers? Write a farm-themed poem and be entered to win money towards your favourite farmers market (which we know is Main St Station, of course.) For more information, visit the BCAFM Ode To a Farmer Poetry Contest webpage.
