Join us for the first Kids’ Marketplace at the Port Moody Winter Farmers Market! Support the community’s children and youth in their (typically first) attempt to make a product and bring it to market.
Sunday Feb 23 10am-2pm
Port Moody Winter Farmers Market
300 Ioco Road (Port Moody Rec Centre)
This event is a great way for kids to learn first-hand what it’s like to develop a product to sell. The experience will give them a small glimpse of what it takes to come up with a feasible product, how to manage small-scale production, set up a visually-appealing space to market their goods, and interact with potential customers – all in a safe, supportive and friendly environment!
We have three markets in December to help with your feast preparations and gift shopping:
December 1: The first market of the hectic seasonal gearing-up, this market will be packed (inside and out!) with vendors bringing their special holiday goodies (yep, you’ll find traditional German stollen at the market). This is a great market to stock up on some of the feast staples that store well (squash, frozen meats, cheese, etc) and to work on that gift list.
December 15: The last market before Christmas, we’re hosting a special Holiday Market from 9am – noon. Come early to find the best selection from our vendors and stay a while to enjoy the special activities being provided by the market: Christmas carollers, free hot chocolate, raffle baskets, cookie decorating for the kids, and a pancake breakfast.
December 29: Sandwiched delightfully between Christmas and New Year’s, this market will present a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the ongoing season. Invite some friends, and turn it into a holiday outing by taking in a bite from one of our hot food vendors, enjoy a fresh-brewed cup of coffee and gather both your regular groceries and the special nibbles you’ll want as you ring in the new year.
Sunday, October 27th is the last market of the year at our Poirier Street location, and we’re taking it out in style! Please join us at our annual Hallowe’en Spooktacularmarket to celebrate the end of a great summer season. We’ll have special games and treats, mask-making at the Kids’ Craft Table, face painting by Marnie, and a costume parade at noon. Best of all, costumed children are invited to do some trick-or-treating at participating market stalls!
Come down to the Port Moody Farmers Market any Friday this October and support the Share Society Food Bank. $7 will get you a delicious hot meal, which you can sit down and savour while you watch a live cooking demo, or listen to music from some amazing local talent. While you’re there, grab some fresh produce or tasty treats for the weekend ahead!
Dinner service starts at 4:00 and goes until the market closes at 7:00.
