With the onset of COVID-19, the farmer’s markets are slightly different this year. To maintain the flow of traffic and avoid crowding we have asked that people “Shop, don’t stop” during the market. This may have created a lack of connection between you and our incredible vendors. We will be posting a weekly spotlight of our vendors to give you the opportunity to stop and connect with your local makers, bakers, and growers!
This week’s vendor spotlight is Pastaggio

What is your favourite thing about the Port Moody Market and Port Moody?
Having the opportunity to meet new people & chat with the community about pasta & seasonal ingredients.
What is something you are grateful for this year?
We are grateful for the support from our community, friends (new & old), family and each other through these hard times of COVID, lock down & launching a new business.
