Pemberton Farmers Market: A Taste of Pemberton
The Pemberton Farmers Market is back in action this June 1, 2018! You can come experience a taste of Pemberton every Friday during the summer and fall until October 26, 2018. Get your hands on some of the freshest produce in the valley and delicious homemade treats of all varieties.
You can visit the Farmers Market from 3 to 6 pm on Fridays at the Pemberton Community Barn, located right in the heart of downtown Pemberton. While each Friday can vary with the vendors present, some items found at the Market generally include; produce, pies, bread, cookies, treats, trinkets, gifts, jewellery, art, jams, pickled foods, locally produced spirits, and much more.
This year, the Pemberton Farmers Market returns with a few new ideas such as the "Friend of the Market" membership for community members who want to support the Pemberton Farmers Market Association (PFMA) and be involved in growing and nurturing the Market. Becoming a Friend of the Market is $20 and includes a seat at the annual general meeting, one vote per membership on bylaws, amendments, and elections of board members, monthly email updates, and a cotton Pemberton Farmers Market grocery bag.
The new changes introduced are the start of the PFMA Strategic Plan 2017-2020 to grow the heart of the community through the Farmers Market and cultivate a vibrant market for local growers, makers, and artisans.
Are you looking to be a vendor at the Pemberton Farmers Market? The PFMA is now accepting vendor, community group, and musician applications for the 2018 season! You can learn more about the Pemberton Farmers Market by visiting their official website. Plus, stay in the loop with the Market on their facebook page or on Instagram at @pembyfarmersmarket.
Here's to another great year of fresh food and community growth!
