Squamish Farmers' Market - Saturday October 12th, 2019 - HARVEST FESTIVAL!
The Thanksgiving long weekend is here and what better way to celebrate than with a FESTIVAL – a HARVEST FESTIVAL! We have an awesome day planned for you, full of fun, games, face-painting, pie contests, potato sack races, live music and of course, the best makers, bakers and growers the Sea to Sky has to offer!
Our community members have been hard at work baking the most delicious pies for our pie contest. Pies will be on display from 10-12, after which the judging will begin! This will be followed up with what is sure to be hilarious potato sack races at 1:00 on the grassy area between the market and the Copper Coil. Winners of the pie contest and the potato sack race will win some amazing prize bags full of treats from our vendors including Rising Knead Bakery, Jordan Bastin Photography, Chaerea Jewelry, Manishi's journals, Whimsy Daisy Designs, The Jerk Store and market swag!
Our farm team for the Thanksgiving weekend is your best source for the most impressive and delicious Thanksgiving dinner you will ever make. Stop by Plenty Wild, Nutrient Dense and Laughing Crow Organics for the best of the best in-season produce. Always always use plenty of garlic, brought to you by LaRiviere Farm! You can grab your succulent turkeys and happily-laid eggs from Stony Mountain Farm and Spray Creek Ranch and finish your dessert off with mouth-watering fruits from Snowy Mountain Organics.
We are also boasting some of the best artisan crafters this weekend, perfect for host gifts or just a little treat for yourself. There will be everything from hand-made jewelry to cozy knitwear, crazy costumes for the upcoming spooky night festivities, and much much more!
For your listening pleasure we have brought in the marvelous Madelyn Read to entertain you while you enjoy the party. Madelyn delivers playful and reflective acoustic originals that span the genres of folk, pop, country, and Americana. As a white cis-woman settler writing and performing on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, Madelyn writes from her identities and experiences, often as a way to explore how dominant social systems and narratives shape lives and communities. She pulls musical influence from her East Vancouver roots and powerful female musicians like Joni Mitchell, I’m With Her, and Norah Jones. You can catch Madelyn on-stage from 12-3.
It's going to be an awesome day – we’ll see you at market!
