Our first Spring Market is coming up fast: Saturday, March 14th (with 2 more monthly markets on April 11 and May 9). Our 2015 weekly markets start on Sat. June 6th. MARQUIS MUSHROOMS will be back at the market after a hiatus of a couple of years (with a new take-home log on which to grow your own shitakes - check out their website for more information - and the picture above), WILLOW TREE BREAD will have some of their wonderful baked goods at the Community Table, and most of your favourite vendors will be there with an outstanding variety of spring bounty!
If you need something to make you even more impatient for market season to get going again, take 3 minutes out to watch this delightful video from the Comox Valley Farmers' market, made to show what an outstanding variety of fresh local food can be bought for $60! https://www.youtube.com/watch?
And if you're looking for great fresh food close to home, WHITE HOUSE STABLES just had a pig come back from the Butchers - BACON, pork sausages, (including a gluten free option), a limited number of salami, and did I mention bacon? are in stock! As well as Turkey sausages. You can find their address, hours and contact info on their website.
