First Sign of Spring: Farmers’ Market is Back!

Mrs. Blogger and I were over at the Catherdral Neighbourhood Centre on Saturday checking out the wonderful fare at the first Spring Farmer’s Market of 2010. We found some nice greenhouse tomatoes, fresh basil and even some fenugreek sprouts for sandwiches.

After a long, grey, cold winter it sure is nice to smell and taste some fresh, local produce. Come see what local producers have to offer!

The markets run on Saturdays from 9:30AM – 1:30PM at the Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre on 13th Avenue. The spring markets run till April 24th.

Starting May 1st the markets will move outdoors. This year they will start at City Hall Plaza and Smith&McIntyre streets, all around City Hall, due to planned construction of a new market space around Victoria Park.

For more information about the markets, please call Ada Bennett, the Market Manager, at 352-FARM.
