The Steveston crowds were out and about enjoying the crisp fall air and sunshine this past Sunday October 21, which also marked the first Cannery Farmers’ Market of the 2018-19 season. It was great to see market regulars coming back to greet the returning and new vendors; many came to catch the first of the special Food Skills Workshops presented by the Richmond Food Security Society (RFSS), with a demonstration on cooking with salmon by RFSS Executive Director and Chef Ian Lai. Entertainment was provided by local musicians Norine Braun and Mickey Slick, and there was even an appearance by Parka, the Parks Canada mascot! Thanks to all the visitors who came to support the market and contribute to its community atmosphere, and to all the wonderful, hard-working market volunteers.
Hope to see everyone again at our next market on Sunday November 4th. For market details, please visit the Cannery Farmers’ Market website.
