Our Market fruit comes from BCs beautiful Similkameen Valley, which specializes in organic tree-fruit production. Why organic? Orchardists who produce their fruit organically are committed to growing their fruit without herbicides, while using natural methods of controlling pests, keeping their soil and trees healthy, and much more. For us, it’s also important that we know our growers, and the quality of the fruit they produce. Most of all, we enjoy the amazing taste of these carefully-produced cherries, peaches, apricots, plums, pears, tomatoes and apples. We hope you will, too!
This Saturday we have 23 vendors at the Market! Pick up a bag of locally-roasted coffee from DustyRoad; indulge your sweet tooth with something from Cupcakes for Butters or a Double N Ranch cookie (or two); take home some fresh wood-oven-baked bread, pretzels, and croissants; taste some mead from Tamarack Jack’s; choose some beautiful jewelry for yourself or a friend; and buy a colourful African woven basket to carry all your treasures. If your feet get tired, sit down with a book from local author Marilyn Halvorson, or something from the Sundre Municipal Library.
Local gardens are coming on strong; we’re featuring the season’s first new potatoes this week, along with a variety of garden greens: spinach, kale, basil, sorrel, arugula … how healthy you will be!
And there’s much more: quilted and knitted crafts; woodwork and ironwork; preserves and pickles, natural granola, locally-raised grass-fed beef, trees and flowers, farm-fresh eggs, live music—and we’re counting on sunshine this week, besides. Why not make a place for us in your Canada Day weekend celebrations?
See you at the Market!
