Squamish Farmers' Market - Saturday August 17th, 2019
Hello Market Lovers,
Did you know that all our vendors MUST make, bake or grow their products in order to sell at the Squamish Farmers' Market? It's what makes farmers' markets special and helps support community members. Instead of having to sell in a store and losing a cut of their living wage, all the profits go back to the maker, baker or grower and in turn back into our community. That's why you won't find bottled drinks, or mass-produced knitted headwear or even dog treats that are filled with a bunch of low-cost junk food for your fur friends. Just hand-made quality goods.
Well we're well into summer, and these days can get hot! We've got a number of cool beverages and treats to quench your thirst and take your body temperature down a notch. Mountain Squeeze has a colourful truck you can't miss filled with fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies and even espresso boosters! Squamish Water Kefir offers probiotic-packed and very refreshing flavoured water kefirs that even your littles will love. Sea to Sky Aguas Frescas specializes in the iconic Mexican flavoured waters that are so very addictive, and of course, Frostbites crafts tonics, cordials and syrups to flavour their amazingly yummy and essentially summer snow cones.
Just a reminder that if you can't find a beverage that tickles your fancy, there is always water available to fill your to-go cup at the market tent!
