Think Global, Buy Local
Chilliwack Farmer's Market opens June 23 at Minter's
Submitted by Geoffrey Dalman, Chilliwack Market Manager
The Farmer's Market last year once again proved to be popular with locals.
he Chilliwack Farmers Market is ready to start the 2012 summer season this Saturday, June 23. Returning to the front parking lot of Minter Country Garden Store at #10015 Young Road North, Chilliwack shoppers can buy the best fresh, local offerings available each week straight from the field, pasture, oven or tree.
farm berries and vegetables, along with Okanagan fruit and home
baked pies, meats, eggs, cheese and crafts are on display for
everybody to enjoy. Ask the growers, bakers and artisans about what
type of ingredients and effort goes into your food and then you can
make informed choices. From field-to-fork there is no better way to
understand and support your local farmers and artisans than coming
down to the Chilliwack Farmers Market and buying the delicious
produce and goodies.
Have fun with the family and kids as well, last year saw a wonderful game contest viewing and guessing the weight of a monster pumpkin. The lucky winner received a bountiful Thanksgiving feast supplied by the market's vendors and management.
market manager, Geoffrey Dalman, explained that last year's season
was extended because of customer requests and community demand that
he was only too happy to respond to.
Chilliwack Farmers Market will continue to grow and entertain
shoppers while also providing everybody with a great meeting place
to have fun, buy local food and support local farmers.
