Our market will be the starting-off point for the 2012 North Saanich Flavour Trial. In addition to lots of new and returning vendors (as well as all our regulars), you can come to the market to get your program for the tour (or download it yourself).
Debbie Trerice now has North Saanich ethically-raised lamb for sale. It's being sold by the half (left or right) and has been cut, wrapped and frozen. The cost is $4.00/lb. hung weight, which works out to about $6.00/lb. after cutting and wrapping.
There are lots of obvious reasons to come out and support a local market. Fresher produce, knowing where your food comes from, reduced carbon footprint; but the best reason is the fun you'll have when visiting the market each week to see what's new.
Thank you to all who attended The Promise of Spring Luncheon. A special thanks to: Tina Fraser Baynes for sourcing and cooking the delicious food; Sommelier Kami Lee Rob of Wine Pixie Cellar Management for pairing the wines; and Jennifer and David Johns for hosting the event.
On February 14th Jon Steinman, radio broadcaster and host of the national food show “Deconstructing Dinner”, addressed a sold out crowd at the Chalet Muse Winery. Mr. Steinman is part of an award-winning independent media network working for a food-secure Canada.
