The 2016 season of the Powell River Farmers’ Market is coming up and returning market manager, Juhli Jobi, is looking forward to another great season.
Farmers’ Market Opening Day is Saturday, April 23, starting at 10:30 am -12:30 pm at Paradise Valley Exhibition Grounds.
In powellriverfarmersmarket.blogspot.com, Juhli recently posted: Did you know that the Farmers’ Market originally opened in 1987, so we’re heading into our 29th year of operation!
This year we’re looking forward to a wonderful season starting with bedding plants and leading into fresh fruit and vegetables from local farmers, eggs, honey, frozen meats ranging from chicken to port and possibly some chevon and rabbit.
As well, there will be vendors selling homemade crafts, soaps and lotions, woodwork, knitting, arts, flower arrangements and more.
The healthy, vibrant colours of locally grown food will whet your appetite!
So, remember to bring your own reusable containers and bags, cash – small bills and coins are always appreciated – and a smile, that way you’ll fit right in!
