NEW WESTMINSTER – The Royal City Farmers Market invites New Westminster to share the love at the next Winter Market, coming up just after Valentine’s Day on Saturday, February 20.
“As always, I can’t wait for the monthly winter market,” says Operations Manager Jen Arbo. “I feel such a huge sense of community at the market, and look forward to not only the food and other goods, but seeing all the happy faces, both familiar and new!”
The theme for February’s market will be “In Love With the Market” and will feature musical guest Chris Messytone playing romantic French and Italian folk music on the accordion. As always, customers will find locally grown fresh produce, homemade goodies, handmade crafts and one-of-a-kind items.
The market will feature storytelling for the kids with author Kathleen McMillan, who will read her heartwarming story of Bluebeary the Bear. The New Westminster Community Garden Society will be present to share their progress on opening new garden sites around the city.
RCFM will also be “spreading the love” by collecting food bank donations at the event.
The market will be held from 10am-2pm on Saturday, February 20 at the Holy Trinity Cathedral Hall at 514 Carnarvon St. For a listing of all vendors who will be there, check out the complete details.
