Farmer’s Market Harvest Festival

fall-harvestIt’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!

Your Market Needs You!

supervolunteerLike 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 for more information.


Foodbank Fridays Kick Off

foodbank-friday-fajitasThe Port Moody Market’s newest event kicked off last week with great success! Every Friday in October, the market is offering attendees a delicious hot meal in support of the Share Society Food Bank. For just $7, you can enjoy a hot entree, a fresh salad, a tasty side, and a decadent dessert, with proceeds going to the food bank. Last week we served up some fantastic fajtas seasoned with spice mix from the market’s own BC Bud’s Garlic, a gorgeous salad made with fresh veggies from our generous market vendors, and a truly amazing (raw, vegan) one-bite brownie from Living Lotus. The night was livened up with musical contributions from Jeff Huggins, and Audrey Wong from Living Lotus provided some enlightening (and delicious!) chef’s demos.

Special thanks to our generous vendors, and also to our volunteers – we couldn’t have done it without you!
