Saskatoon Farmers' Market at Riverlanding
E AT HERE NOW 2011
11-4PM SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 | CENTENNIAL SQUARE | VICTORIA BC
Come join us! The Eat Here Now 2011 Local Food Harvest Festival is an event organized by the Victoria Downtown Public Market Society in support of the re-establishment of a year-round, indoor local food-centered public market for downtown Victoria. We believe that the return of a permanent public market downtown is vital for a healthy local food system and community. Such a market will improve the island’s food security by increasing accessibility to island grown products during every season, helping local farms remain vibrant and sustainable. Additionally, a downtown local food market will promote and support local businesses and bring neighbors together to commune and share resources, and provide a hub of food-related community education, commerce and creativity.
Eat Here Now is a FREE, family-friendly festival taking place from 11am – 4pm on Sunday September 11th in Spirit (Centennial) Square featuring some of the best farmers, fishers, butchers, bakers, processors, vintners, brewers, coffee roasters and restaurants in the region. To celebrate the craft of our food producers there will be live music from local musicians and DJs; the regions largest farmers’ market; a corn boil sponsored by Silver Rill Corn; a wild salmon roast by the Island Chef’s Collaborative and the BC Salmon Council; beer, wine, cider and mead tastings; and local restaurants demonstrating how they make the best use of regional produce and value-added food products.
