Winter Market, Vendor Videos & Important Dates
With the long winter months turning the corner to slightly longer days the hope of spring starts to glimmer in the distance - especially on sunny days in Powell River.
The Winter Market has seen an incredible expansion this year. If you haven't had a chance to check it out please do so, it's located at the Community Resource Center on Joyce Ave and runs every Saturday from 10:30-12:30 rain or shine!
You'll see many familiar faces from the summer and meet a few new ones as well. Take some time to get to know some of the local products that local people are passionate about.
For full details and to see some of what has already happened, take a look at the Winter Market's Facebook Page.
This is the first year that the winter market is having produce all winter long, our local farmers have made provisions to ensure produce is available to the community throughout the entire winter. This takes quite a bit of forethought and planning. On most Saturdays you can find squash, carrots, beets, onions, garlic, potatoes, kale and herbs.
There have been some lovely videos made featuring some local businesses (and vendors) as part of the "Live & Invest in Powell River" campaign and you can check them out below:
Gosia & Ezra from Myrtle Point Heritage Farms
Margot & Nathan from 32 Lakes Coffee Roasters
The Winter Market will be open until April 18, 2015 at it's current location.
The Powell River Open Air Farmers' Market will open on April 25th & 26th and continue every weekend rain or shine until the end of September.
