SATURDAY MORNINGS WITH THE PENINSULA’S FINEST!

See you here every Saturday till October 12!

Another hot but busy market today, with our customers loving the great produce that the heat is bringing on (we’re on the cusp of tomatoes and garlic, and the first of the basil and zucchinis are already on grower’s tables!), and the music and shade tents to relax and enjoy it all.  We hope to have local blueberries at the Community Table next week, and more sweet strawberries and raspberries available at several tables in the market.

FLOUR POWER baking will be back at the Community Table this week.  Elise from LITTLE ACRE SOAP is finally making her first appearance of the season with her wonderful hand-made soaps and natural products for bath, body and home, and SUNDAYS SPENT SOLDERING is back with her lovely west coast stained glass work.

We’ll have more exciting new music with the Celtic band ISLAND B’YES playing in their first appearance at the market, featuring music by Great Big Sea, The Irish Rovers, Spirit of the West, the Pogues and more.  Seems like your dancing shoes (or your bare feet in the grass) might be in order!

  1. The 1st annual NOBLE GARDEN TREASURE HUNT is on Sunday, July 28th from 1:00-4:00.
In addition to the small treats and treasures to be found in boxes hidden in the orchard there will be several larger treasures for the lucky finder:  LA-Z-BOY FURNITURE GALLERIES in Victoria has donated a $100.00 gift card and a package containing a charcuterie board and Canadel’s “The Art of Dining” book, and MUFFET AND LOUISA has donated a $50.00 gift card.  New donors of smaller treasures include TASTE OF TOKYO in Sidney and NEZZA NATURALS in Victoria (locally made organic products for face, body, hair and home), as well as FLOUR POWER (the exceptional North Saanich baker so well known to customers of the NS Farm Market), and tasty preserves from SARAH’S STAPLES.  All the wonderful donors are listed on the poster!
 
We’ll also be hosting an open garden for self-tours and picnics on the same day, so whether you plan to indulge your inner child (or your actual one!) with the treasure hunt, or just enjoy the garden and the wonderful music provided by ROSIE AND CORINNE, I hope you’ll come out and support the garden!  Tickets available at the Community Table at the market, or by emailing thenoblegarden1@gmail.com to reserve.  This is a fundraiser for the Noble Garden.
