June 16th at the Squamish Farmers' Market
Hello to all the lovely market-go'ers!
This Saturday at the Squamish Farmers Market is going to be just wonderful! The weather is predicted to be very sunny and very warm (28°C)! Don't we always get so lucky! This is also an exciting week because not only will we get to sway to great live tunes performed for us by The Wells, a local Squamish band, and enjoy the great products and services offered by over 45 vendors, but we have many other events starting up this weekend. First off, the Farmers Market Nutrition Coupon Program begins this week at the Squamish Farmers Market. For those who have not heard of this great project, the FMNCP distributes vouchers to members of the community who are in need of fresh, healthy foods, including pregnant women, seniors, and low-income families. These vouchers are redeemable for fresh veggies, eggs, dairy, meat, and nuts at farmers markets around BC! Click here for more information about the program. We are also starting up a community-wide 50/50 draw that will be taking place each Saturday for the rest of the summer. Participants must be 19+, and the winner will be drawn at 2pm! Lastly, we'll also be hosting a fun, and perhaps challenging, game at the Zero Waste Station, to educate about how to use Squamish's recycling and compost services. Who knew throwing out your garbage could be so much fun!
In addition to all this, we have new vendors joining our market! Get all the work services and info you need from WorkBC. Jacinta from Daisy Chains makes beautiful hand-drawn art to decorate your home with. Bite Snacks offers "alternative" eats - cricket powder products! And Sea to Sky Aguas Frescas is a new great stop where you can quench your thirst, with delicious Mexican-style juices! 3J's Smokehouse is also returning to the market for the season, so you can finally pick up your beef jerkey snacks as well.
Although the Squamish Farmers Market has lots to keep you busy, we have neighbors this Saturday to check out: The District of Squamish is holding an event in Junction Park to get community input on future changes to the Brennan Park Recreation Centre. Get more info about it by clicking HERE.
Obviously, this is a Saturday at the market that can't be missed! I can't wait all your smiling faces tomorrow, from 10am-3pm!
