Good News, Everyone!
The Surrey Urban Farmers Market has two exciting announcements. First of all, we’re on the move! You know that new Civic Plaza behind City Hall and the City Centre Library? Currently it looks like this:
It’s scheduled to be finished by May, and we’ve applied to the city to use the plaza for our 2014 summer market season. It’s a great location and we’re very excited to host our market there. Our application is currently being reviewed by the city.
Our second announcement is a time change. Yes, we know you just went through Daylight Savings, but here it is: the Surrey Urban Farmers Market will now be open from noon til 5 pm on Wednesdays. Catch some tunes on your lunch break, or swing by for an early dinner!
In Your Community
Did you know that the Surrey Urban Farmers Market works with community groups to make fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts, meat and dairy available for folks who may not otherwise be able to afford it?
Thanks to Healthy Families BC and the BC Association of Farmers Markets, we are able to work with Umoja Operation Compassion Society and Oak Avenue Neighbourhood Hub to provide 60 families and 20 seniors with Farmers Market Nutrition Coupons. We are so thrilled to be able to be part of this program this year again and hope that it will grow even bigger next year!
Market Beets Stage
At the Surrey Urban Farmers Market we love to support local musicians as well as local
food! Every week we welcome the talents of different musicians for an afternoon that may include original work, a walk down memory lane, or tunes that cause you to get up and dance!
If you’re a regular you might recognize the musical talents of Joe Given, Yvon Langlois, Braden Daniel or Chris the Accordion Guy. Don’t be shy to request your favourite song!
