Squamish Farmers' Market - Saturday October 5th, 2019
Hello Market Lovers,
We are into our final month of the Summer Market before we move to the Adventure Centre for our Winter Market starting November 2nd! With the fall weather the mornings are getting crisp and comfort is a must. One of our favourite morning comfort foods is homemade granola. Thankfully we have one of the best granola vendors the Sea to Sky has to offer and they are at market this weekend!
Whistler Granola makes gourmet granola in Whistler B.C. Their focus is on making the best possible tasting granola, and presenting it in a fun and informative way while minimising the impact on the environment. To that end, their product packaging is AST D6400 certified (required by the Resort Municipality of Whistler for compatability with SeaToSkySoils.com's composting process). When you come to dispose of their packaging, please place it in the compostable collection bins along with food scraps and organic waste. Whistler Granola mitigates the impact further by donating 50c from every packet sold to www.ProtectOurWinters.ca. How great is that?!
Once you've got your morning comfort food, head on over to our farm team to fill your fridges with nutritional goodness! This week we will be hosting Nutrient Dense, Laughing Crow Organics and Plenty Wild Farms for veggies, Snowy Mountain Organics for fruit and Stony Mountain Farm for eggs. Don't forget to pre-order your turkey from Stony Mountain as well!
We went to Awesome Town for your entertainment this week. Be sure to grab a chair in our seating area by 10:30 to check out a cooking demo by the fabulous chef Alice Savage of Wild Fermentation. Alice has 22 years of experience in all areas of the hospitality industry, including cooking for HRH The Duke of York and family at the Balmoral Estate in Scotland. She has worked on film sets, in private homes, ski chalets and in hotels and wine bars around the world. Her education also includes an advanced certificate with the Wines and Spirits Educational Trust. We can't wait to taste what she creates!
Once you've had a chance to grab a sample from Alice and you've had a chance to grab any other market treasure you desire, you can sit and enjoy the musical talents of Mr. Monty Biggins! Monty is a composer, entertainer, producer and recording artist from the West Coast of Canada who's big energy music will be sure to get you tapping a toe or two. This guy is a pleasure to watch so get there early to grab a seat! You can catch Monty on stage from 12-3.
We're looking forward to an awesome market day - see you there!
Your Loving Squamish Farmers' Market
