North Saanich Farm Market News
We're pleased to announce that Sandra Holloway (Phoebe's daughter) has invited us back to stage our 3rd Summer Fete in her garden on Sunday, June 23rd, from 1:00 to 4:00! This year, we'll be featuring 2 local beverage producers, Domaine Rochette (from Victorian Epicure) with local wines, and Sea Cider with their popular local ciders. Some of our wonderful artists will be returning (Judy McLaren, Stephanie Steele, Heather Goulet), and we'll be featuring some new artists (Maggie Warkentine). Brad Prevedoros will again entertain and inspire us with his music, and Sandra will be on hand to educate and enlighten us with stories of her mother, and tips to create a vegetable garden like her beautiful example in the heart of the garden. We'll also be raffling a painting created by Judy McLaren in the garden last year (Phoebe's Orchard, 2012). Tickets for the event are $20 for NSFFS members and $25.00 for non-members. Tickets for the raffle are 1/$5.00 or 3/$10.00. All proceeds support the work of our Society and our efforts to support and sustain a year-round local food system.
Unfortunately, we've had to cancel our Traditional Foods Pit Cook for our final market.
We're hoping to reschedule for next spring - stay tuned!
