North Saanich Farm Market celebrates the arrival of spring - with sprouts

NEXT MARKET:  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th

09:30-12:30

A great dinner starts at the North Saanich Farm Market!

Yikes!  September already!! That means that - although there are still plenty of summer fruits (raspberries, strawberries) and veggies at the market, we'll be moving into the autumn bounty (apples, pears, winter squash, late tomatoes, and root vegetables) over the next few markets.  And whatever the weather, our hardy growers, crafters and wonderful volunteers will make sure the market is humming!  We're also very excited to welcome Chris and Mitchell of THE FICKLE FIG FARM this week. They've transformed a 4 1/2 acre hayfield in Saanich into a farm with vegetables, an orchard (with bees) and a pasture for goats, pigs and chickens. Check out their website!  This week's musicians: THE BRAMBLING BOYS; our featured Plein Air Artist: TBA; this week's Learning Table: HATCHET &  SEED (edible landscaping and applied permaculture).

DON'T FORGET, THE MARKET RUNS UNTIL THANKSGIVING, SAT. OCTOBER 11th!

2014 NORTH SAANICH FLAVOUR TRAIL - AUGUST 22-24th

  

It was a perfect weekend for the Flavour Trail! Attendance and weather were both great, with lots of people showing up for the market (a record number, in fact!).  All the venues were busy (that's the crowd for the sheepdog herding demonstration above), and we thank everyone who tried the Trail.  We hope you'll continue to patronize some or all of the venues, and please keep checking the Flavour Trails website for the next peninsula agriculture events (like the CHEF SURVIVAL CHALLENGE at Madrona Farm on Sunday, September 7th, and SAANICH HARVEST DAYS on September 12th and 13th)!

Becoming a Market Vendor or Volunteer

Our market is focused on supporting agriculture and food production on the Saanich Peninsula.  We`re currently looking for new growers and food vendors to serve healthy food at the market.  Read more »
