It’s that time of year again! The summer season is winding down, and we’re all getting ready to hunker down and wait out another wet west coast winter. Come out this weekend and celebrate the changing season with us at the Coquitlam Farmer’s Market Harvest Festival this Sunday from 9:00 – 1:00. We’ll have face painting and games for the kids, special displays from our vendors, and a gourmet barbeque – the last of the season!
Like so many other community events, the Port Moody and Coquitlam Farmer’s Markets rely on volunteers to keep things rolling along smoothly! If you care about local food, love local art, or want to make some new friends, we’d love to have you on our team! Our volunteers help set-up and tear-down the market at each of our locations, and provide general assistance to our vendors and visitors. We also need people to help out with special events, like October’s Foodbank Fridays and annual Hallowe’en Spooktacular. On-site training is provided to all volunteers. Sign up online, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
