Next week is Farmers Appreciation Week, September 8-15! We’ll be celebrating at the market on the 10th and 13th, but you can get involved by checking out and sharing these 10 reasons to buy local and support farmers, and by entering the Ode to a Farmer Poetry Contest!
10 Reasons to Buy Local and Support your Farmers:
The BCAFM Ode to a Farmer Poetry Contest: Write a farmer-inspired poem and submit to the contest by September 7th for a chance to win a $150 gift certificate to the market of your choice!
Regional winners will win $50 gift certificates to their local market!
