THIS SATURDAY, the 13th of February 2016, it’s the FIRST BIRTHDAY of our Farmers Market.
It has been seriously fabulous to bring farmers, preservers and eaters all together in one place. The conversations and connections that have been built at the markets have been beneficial to all involved, and we look forward to spending many more moments with you. After the market, we will be lighting the BBQ and sharing some food and stories, we welcome you to bring a plate and join us to celebrate our local food system. If you play an instrument, feel free to bring it along to play a few tunes.
The diversity, honesty and care of our producers is refreshing and demonstrates that a Fair Food future is possible. Isn’t it fabulous to know that we are all playing a part in making it a reality.
