It’s BC Heritage Week from February 19th to 25th — and we’re celebrating BC’s rich heritage at the Cannery Farmers’ Market! Shop over 30 local vendors, chat with author and Diamond Jubilee Medal recipient, Alain Boire, and pick up a signed copy of his book, With Hearts and Minds: Maillardville, 100 years of history on the West Coast of BC. At 1pm, join a special building tour “Built for Canning: the structural form and function of our historic cannery” — the tour is free, but limited to maximum 15 people. You may sign up in advance for the tour in person at the Cannery, or by email.
Admission to the Cannery on market days is FREE. Guided heritage tours of the Cannery will be offered by donation. The market will run on Sundays from October 2017 through April 2018 on the following dates: October 15 & 29, November 11 & 26, December 3, 10 & 17, January 28, February 11 & 25, March 11 & 25, and April 8 & 22.
