Scenes from the Trout Lake Farmers Market #vanfarmers
You may think we’re a little obsessed with the farmers market these days, and the truth is we’re VERY obsessed because it’s one of our main areas of focus. Connecting people with where their food comes from is what Foodtree is all about, and there’s no better place than the farmers market to bring together consumers interested in fresh local food and the producers and farmers who grow it.
I love going to the farmers market because it’s the place where I’m reminded that food is a beautiful thing. Where food is tastier when eaten in season rather than shipped from afar. I get really excited about finding some of my favorite food items, like asparagus, and enjoy them thoroughly for the short time they’re around.
These are just some of the many items available from vendors at last Saturday’s market at Trout Lake. Don’t they look enticing?
Apple juice from Klippers Organics
Radishes from SOLEfood farm
Fiddleheads from Promised Land Farm
Mushrooms from Richmond Specialty Mushroom Growers
It was great to see so many people in attendance last weekend despite the grey and rainy day.
The Foodtree Team was glad to be there for opening day…we had an excellent morning talking to farmers, shopping for food, and tasting the season’s new food. Next weekend we’ll be at Kitsilano Farmers Market; make sure you say hello if you are there!
