Sun Peaks Farmers’ Market begins June 27

 | June 24, 2010

It’s a perfect opportunity to purchase local, sustainable food for your family’s dinner table, while enjoying a gorgeous alpine setting. The Sun Peaks & Region Farmers’ Market returns to the village square this Sunday, June 27, for the first market of the summer!

Local farmers, ranchers and artisans will be in the village selling fruits, veggies, local meats, seafood, arts, crafts, beauty products, and more! And while you’re shopping enjoy live musical entertainment, or watch ‘Chef in Market’ cooking demonstrations on select weekends, as Sun Peaks Chefs show guests how to use local ingredients in yummy, unique dishes.

There are two new programs in the Sun Peaks Market this summer, the VIP Program and the Loyalty Card. Purchase a V.I.P. card from the Market Manager for only $10 and enjoy VIP specials at every vendor booth all summer! To participate in the Loyalty Program, pick up your FREE card from any vendor this summer and collect 10 stamps (one per purchase) and enter in a draw to win an end-of-season gift basket!

Come up for the market and stay for the day in the natural mountain environment surrounding Sun Peaks. Ride the chairlift and hike in the alpine, go mountain biking, horseback riding or canoe at McGillivray Lake.

The Sun Peaks & Region Farmers’ Market will take place every Sunday this summer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
