OUR 1st MONTHLY 2016 MARKET IS SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 9:30-12:30
PROTO-PRODUCE in Fickle Fig's Greenhouse!
Our 3 monthly spring markets are on MARCH 12, APRIL 9 & MAY 14 this year. Our growers' greenhouses are already bursting with seeds and sprouts! With the first spring market just over a month away, and most local fields still looking more like ponds than gardens, they probably won't be quite ready to sell these greens, but we expect to have a selection of winter veggies, preserves, eggs and meats (local lamb and pork), as well as fresh bread and great crafts. THE GOOD SEED HEMP COMPANY has confirmed they'll be there with locally-grown hemp hearts, protein powder and hemp oil. We'll keep the website updated as our vendors confirm their attendance at the March market. And check out the lineup of entertainment booked for this year (click on "At the Market", then "Entertainment"): returning favourites like Charlie Burton, Water in the Crawl Space and Jennifer Louise Taylor, and some great new bands and musical styles, like Swingkey (swing), Doctor Bones Project (blues) and Pocket Full of Dust (bluegrass).
The weekly summer markets will run from June 4th to October 8th.

North Saanich Farm Market News
Thanks to all who purchased tickets on the raffle to raise funds to support the North Saanich Food for the Future Society and the market (and of course, to Sandhu for his very generous donation!). We're pleased to announce that CLARE VIPOND'S name was drawn at our final market. There was a lot of interest and excitement over the season, and we hope to do a similar raffle next year!
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 »
