THE NEXT MARKET IS ON SAT. SEPT. 5th, 9:30-12:30
The next market is Sat. September 5th (10990 West Saanich Road, North Saanich).
The recent rain has been really refreshing and so welcome! But the bottom line is that everything is still ripening early this year, so we're already into winter squash, apples, and pears. But there's also a rainbow of tomatoes, carrots, peppers, greens... It's a great time of year for food! The next market will feature prawns, shrimp, and sushi-quality albacore tuna from Sean at Wild West Fish (and maybe the first wild mushrooms!), Silver Rill corn, fall raspberries and strawberries, and those incredible squash! (And take a moment to read this article in EAT Magazine, feturing our lovely market manager, SOLARA GOLDWYNN and her edible landscape business - HATCHET & SEED - that she runs with her husband Taylor Krawczyk!)

Local award-winning watercolour artist SANDHU SINGH has very generously donated a painting created especially for the market to be raffled as a fund-raiser for the North Saanich Food for the Future Society. Tickets are are $5.00 each or 3 for $10.00, available at the market - look for them at the Community Table each week until Thanksgiving! We'd like to also give special thanks to Germain Taylor for donating her time and expertise to create a custom frame for this wonderful painting!
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 »
