A great dinner starts at the North Saanich Farm Market!

It's Flavour Trail weekend! There's lots to see and do in North Saanich this weekend, but start at the market and stock up on the bounty of fresh veggies, baking, lamb, fish and crafts the peninsula has to offer.  Everbearing strawberries, raspberries, apples, pears, sweet corn, crispy carrots and beets, tomatoes in every size and colour, fresh salmon and shrimp, lots of lamb products - and of course, fresh baked cakes, pies, scones, breads and cookies! HEDGEROW PRESS will be back, and CHEEKY ROBIN makes their first appearance with spectacular fabric cushions. Come for the food, stay for the music (THE BALD EAGLES are back!) and the company!  Our featured Plein Air Artist: SAM BOEHNER
