Granville Island Summer Farmers Market
With only 5 markets left in the season - how did that happen! - we are having a few of our amazing vendors coming to the end of their seasons. The wonderful Meredith and Salty Cookie Co. will be at our August 31 market for the final week, as she prepares to send her children back to school next week! Also attending for the final time this week is Rai Produce from Osooyoos, BC. Aman has been bringing us delicious cherries, raspberries, apricots and peaches through the summer but it time for him to return to his studies as well.
Don't fret - there are still a ton of your faves in attendance! Dermoth and Nature's Village will be here as well as BCB Honey Farm and Kurt Vlachos Plants. Looking for something special to spice up your back to school wardrobe? Visit Ildiko Jewellery, Vesna Jankovic Jewellery, Line of Love Jewellery (specifically for your musically inclined student! - beautiful pendants to choose from), Devi Arts Collective for something different.
Parents - looking to celebrate the children returning to school? Liberty Distillery, Forbidden Fruit Winery, Gillespie's Fine Spirits or Rocky Creek Winery from the Comox Valley have something to put a smile on your face.
Looking for specialty items for your back-to-school lunches or breakfasts? Preserved by Janet Patricia's Lemon Curd is spot on in the morning; Coconama Chocolate has something for the lunch box that can be used as friend makers! Yellow Deli from Chilliwack has specialty breads available to amp up your normal sandwhich (Jalapeno Cheddar is amazing!!) or some cookies made with love from Salty Cookie Co. All vendors have ingredients listed or can help you out if you have gluten/sugar/dairy/nuts/other issues to contend with.
To relax you after a long day of prepping lunches and dropping off/picking up kids from all over, visit Abbey Lane for something special for your skin. A little rejuvination goes a long way :)
As always, Farmers Market is Thursdays, 10 AM - 3 PM, Triangle Square on beautiful Granville Island...oh... and it is to be a hot one this week as well!!
Come one come all.
