Would you like the opportunity to help seniors in your community have access to fresh local food?
Join us on April 9th for our Fresh/Paint Fundraiser! All proceeds from this event go towards the Seniors to the Market Shuttle Program which provides door to door service for seniors facing barriers to attending our farmers market.
This event takes place at the beautiful 100 Braid Street Studios and will be an evening of art, agriculture, wine and cheese. There are over a dozen local artists’ studios to visit, farmers to mingle with, good food and wine (or beer) and you get to create your own water colour masterpiece. Purchase tickets online or at our Info Table this Saturday!
The Roland Kaulfuss Music Stage will be featuring Ron Forbes. Ron has been performing solo acoustic numbers for several years and loves playing at the local farmers markets.
Make sure to stop by and say hello to our community guests The Music Box.
Driving to the market? FREE PARKING is available at Westminster Centre, directly across the street from Belmont Street. If you are taking transit the #106 bus stops at 5th avenue and 6th street. Coming from the Quay? Take River Market’s brand new FREE DUC shuttle from the Quay straight to our location.
