As we wrap up the final few weeks of the winter market season, staff and volunteers are working to make our March and April markets especially engaging:
March 9: Gluten-Free
Visit us at the Market Information table to find out more about what it means when you see a “gluten-free” sign at the market and to learn more about our Gluten-Free Vendors.
March 23: Backyard Gardening
This market will highlight some tips’n’tricks for backyard gardeners, and seed planting for kids. We’ll also be hosting Master Gardener, Lori Greyell, from the Port Moody Police Department Community Garden, so come chat with her if you want to get some tips on what to grow throughout the season, how to make the most out of a small space, or any other gardening question.
April 6: Final Winter Market
To celebrate the closing of the winter season, the Port Moody Winter Farmers Market will be hosting a Membership Appreciation Day. Look for great Member Specials all around the market! If you haven’t already, sign up for a membership and for the weekly newsletter that dishes the inside scoop on which vendors will be attending and the deals they’ll be offering.
Finishing one season means that we’re also getting excited about kicking off our summer market season, and we hope you are too! In fact, we need your help to finalize our market plans: please complete our survey to help us best serve you and your ability to access fresh local food. The survey should take you less than ten minutes to complete, and we’d be grateful if you could take a few extra minutes to share the linkwith community members that might otherwise not know about it.
If you’re looking for a way to take on a more active and ongoing role in helping your community access fresh local food, we hope you’ll consider applying for a position on our staff. Find out more about the available positions:
