Port Coquitlam Farmers Market
Here's what's happening this week at the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market!
Bike to the market! The first 25 bikers to come to the information booth get a $5 coupon to use at their favourite vendor! The City of Port Coquitlam Little Sprocket will be in the courtyard to help our little visitors with bike riding skills. We will offer a safe space to park bikes in the courtyard with a market staff on hand to watch over them while you shop.
Once you've parked your bike, check out our Chef at the Market demo with Chef Eileen, featuring strawberries! Strawberries are more than a sweet treat with ice cream and cake. Savoury strawberries are a way to extend the season. Have you had Strawberry Fig Balsamic Jam? Try it on crepes, toast and even as a topping for a crisp wedge of baguette smeared with cream cheese and topped with chopped scapes. How about Smokey Strawberry Sauce? You must taste this, it goes great with chicken. And to wrap it all up, Strawberry, Arugula and Feta salad. Bike to the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market on June 27 to join Chef Eileen at 4:00 to learn about these delectable dishes.
We have a lot of new faces at the market this week! Please give a warm welcome to the following new vendors: D&A Crafts, Mandair Farms, Mr. Black Garlic (Stanza Foods) and My Nuk Pet Products. Be sure to stop by our community group space to visit with local organizations to find out what they do, and how to can get involved. This week stop by and say ‘hi” to Metro Vancouver Parks, Pharmasave, Port Coquitlam Heritage & Culture Society, and The Wilson Seniors Centre.
Jana Seale entertains on the performance stage all market long. There's always something fun for kids to do in our Kids Korner! Come check out something for dinner or just a snack with our concessions, Twisted Creamery, Mama’s Fish & Chips and Gary’s Kettlecorn. At the General Store we supply lemonade, water and organic coffee which this year is generously provided by Frog Friendly Wild Coffee.
Something exciting to look forward to is our Dog Day at the market on July 11th! We will be having a costume parade/best costume contest and several dog related vendors on hand.
We are excited to see you!
