Squamish Farmers' Market - Saturday August 31st, 2019 CHILDREN'S FESTIVAL!
Hello Market Lovers!
The Labour Day long weekend is here, so it's time to celebrate! We know the kids may be bummed about summer vacation coming to a close, so we thought we'd throw a party in their honour. Come join us for the Squamish Farmers' Market Children's Festival!!! The day will be jam-packed with awesome so come prepared for fun!
We're putting together a selfie booth, complete with a tickle trunk filled with all the best and most hilarious costumes to accessorize your best selfie. There will be face-painting, slime-making, miniature displays by none other than the fabulous Moe Ryan of Moe's Pantry and much more!
Live music will be provided by a Squamish Favourite, The Overcomers! They say that music is the language of the soul, and nothing could be truer for this Blues Folk-Rock Band. Composed of inspirational musicians and skillful performers, the artists behind OVERCOMERS have earned their reputation as a talented group to look out for. Overcomers will be gracing the stage from 12-3.
For his final session this season, we thought it fitting to have our impressive 11-year-old musical talent Mr. Von Derrick back for TWO of the Overcomer's breaks this market. Von has been busking over the summer to raise money for Squamish Helping Hands. You can help Von reach his goal of $400 by donating to his cause while he plays at 1:00 and 2:00 for the final time this market season. Good luck Von, we're proud of you!
Of course all your favourite vendors will still be there. We are in prime harvest season so stop by Plenty Wild Farms, Laughing Crow Organics or Nutrient Dense for fresh vegetables, Mandair Farms, Rai Produce and Snowy Mountain Organics for delicious fruits and Stony Mountain Farm for happily laid eggs. Continue on to over 30 more artisan vendors for one-of-a-kind unique crafts your kids will be dying to show their school buddies!
Don't forget to snap a photo of your favourite farmer, use the hashtag #FarmersFeedMe and tag @BCFarmersMarkets. Don't forget to mention which farmers' market you are at and you could win $100 to spend at the farmers' market or a pressure canner! Contest deadline is September 2nd.
We're so excited to celebrate the littles with you all on this fine long weekend - see you at market!
