Squamish Summer Farmers' Market
Good afternoon market subscribers!
Although the days are already getting shorter and we know that the end of this spectacular summer is approaching... we hope everyone is especially looking forward to our last market of August! It is the perfect opportunity to pick up the last of those crisp veggies and juicy berries our farmers have adamently kept in stock for us throughout the season, as soon the fall produce will begin being harvested (an upside to the imminent cooler weather and rainy days of September). But this isn't to say fall has arrived already! Far from it - because this weekend we have a forecast of consistent sun and a comfortable 25 degrees on Saturday! The perfect weather to come enjoy our vibrant farmers market.
We have a full market this week, where nearly 50 vendors will be offering artwork, jewelry, hot food made on the spot, jams and spreads, bread, clothing, fine liquors, tasty treats, kombucha, and produce! And don't forget; we make it, bake it, or grow it! Be sure to check out a new vendor coming to town this week: SpiceWorks Food Creations, a family-run business making delcious instant sauce and dip mixes. Come enjoy the unique creative rythms of the muscial duo Nice Verdes, while you enjoy a massage by Beyond Balance, munch on kettlecorn from Sargent Poppers, or get your facepainted with the kids, at Happimess.
It'll also be the last day to buy tickets for our Market Summer Raffle. For those who haven't heard: it's a fundraiser for the Squamish branch of the Nutrition Coupon Program, a provincial initiative where low-income families and seniors are provided weekly vouchers reedemable for produce and meat at farmers markets! It's a great cause with a great prize: a giftbasket containing over $150 worth of donated goodies from generous vendors at the Squamish Farmers Market! Ticket prices are 1 for $2, 3 for $5, or 7 for $10. We will be drawing the winner at the end of the market day THIS SATURDAY, August 26th!
The Squamish Farmers Market is guaranteed to be a great time for everyone, so come on down! We can't wait to see you there, from 10am-3pm!
