The Royal City Farmers Market Association would like to invite you to our 2016 Annual General Meeting. Our AGM is a time where we are able to get together and provide our members and future members with important information about the past year and our upcoming work for the year ahead.
Date: Sunday February 28th
Location: The Network Hub, 810 Quayside Drive, New Westminster
Time: 3pm to 5pm
Our speaker Emily Wight writer for the blog Well Fed, Flat Broke.
well fed, flat broke is about eating great food, and not paying a lot for it. It’s about eating seasonally, and making the most of what you have in your pantry and what you can afford. Good food doesn’t require expensive ingredients, and eating isn’t a task accomplished in a rush, at least around here, most of the time. It’s about slowing down, planning ahead, and savouring what you put on your plate.
Emily will be talking to us about eating seasonally on a budget and will also have copies of her new cookbook available for purchase.
Fun and Games
It’s Dragon’s Den: Farmers Market Edition! We will select a few lucky vendors to pitch to our panel of “Dragons” their best and tastiest new products for the upcoming summer season. The vendor with the winning pitch will receive a free month of market dates!
