New Farmers Market in Nanaimo

Have friends on the East Coast looking for local food? There is another Farmers Market starting up this Saturday in Nanaimo at Nanaimo North Town Centre! (Rutherford Mall)

I just received this email from a friend of mine… please do pass along the news. Local Food gathers more steam!

Hi all!
My first farmers market is this Saturday!
For those of you who don’t know yet, I’m the Market Manager for the Our Neighbourhood Farmers Market that runs every Saturday at Nanaimo North Town Centre from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. It’s an extremely fun position and I get to contribute to something I’m really passionate about; eating locally grown, sustainable, ethically raised food!
This Saturday is our first farmers market of the season. I’d like to invite you out to see what it’s all about. There will be live entertainment and lots of vendors with interesting products!
I’ve attached one of our posters if you have anywhere you’re able to post it.
Thanks all! Hope to see you there. 😀

If this has a familiar look, it should. When I was a punk learning to deal with French, I found it handy to read real stuff (on gardening, music, sex, drugs, rock & roll). Actually, wen I was a punk, there were only books, and there wasn’t a lot of gardening, science, discussions of issues or whatever else, but Balzac was full of sex and drugs, but he missed the rock and roll boat.

I only post this as an encouragement to show that this isn’t only an offshoot of the British Empire. I expect to find similar sites in Spanish and German, and I can’t help but think that the contagion will spread into Portugal, Italy (Slow Food!), Greece and beyond. Interesting thought.
