"COMMUNITY ROOTS FESTIVAL"
Nanaimo Foodshare was very excited to host our first annual "Community Roots Festival" indoor farmers market
on October 29, 2011 @ Bowen Park Auditorium.
Attendance at the farmers market was free of charge and featured local farmers, as well as local small scale food processors. We also offered a number of free workshops in overwintering and food preserving.
Is Nanaimo ready for a Year-Round Farmers Market? We would love to hear from you....Are you a farmer looking for a market to sell your produce year-round? Are you a consumer looking to purchase locally grown food year-round?
Were you a vendor at this years event? Please take a minute to answer a few questions to help us with planning for next year's event.
