May 8th – First Friday Market of 2020

We are getting ready to go with our first Farmers’ Market of 2020.

Due to COVID-19 recommendations by the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, the Market will currently be restricted to food items and food plants only.

Entrance to the Market will be monitored, hand-sanitizing stations will be provided, and vendors will operate with safe-shopping plans in place. Please remember to maintain those social distances! At least 2 metres (6 feet) from others is the rule. Face covers are encouraged. Please don’t touch the produce – vendors will assist and handle your purchases for you. Clean, new bags will be provided.

Exactly opposite to “before COVID”, for the duration of pandemic health and safety restrictions we are asking that customers SHOP, DON’T STOP! and move through the Market as quickly as possible. There will be no entertainment or seating area, and we are not permitted to allow eating and drinking on-site – if you are buying ready-to-eat food, please be prepared to consume it elsewhere.

As the Recreation Centre is closed, bathroom facilities may not be available at the Market site. Please plan to “go at home” before you stop by.

By shopping responsibly at the Market, you will be supporting your local farmers and food makers while acquiring excellent nutrition from close to home.

Local Food for Local Folk!

Watch for our new ONLINE MARKETPLACE rolling out on May 1st, which allows pre-orders and access to vendors who can’t be at the Market in person. We’ll publish a link when it’s ready to go live.

The TUESDAY MARKET is still in our plans, and scheduled to start June 16th. Updates asap.

Looking forward to hosting you soon.
