Winter Squash Harvest Has Started, and Straw Bales Are Now Available!  

Our winter squash patch is looking positively epic and we have started harvesting some of the earlier varieties.  Our customer favourite Red Kuri will be the first, so get excited to see some bright orange squash on the market table! 

For the gardeners in the group: we are happy to report we are now selling straw bales for mulching your garden over the winter.  Come chat with the farmers about how we use mulch to overwinter our farm crops!

We've had great selection of produce and flower bouquets on the table for the duration of the market, so come down and see what is growing at the farm!

Mamia is Still Missing!
Our market volunteer Cathy has lost her cat in Lynn Valley.  See her message below, and please keep an eye out! 

"Our young female cat Mamia has been missing since July 30th. She went missing from Lynn Valley and Dempsey.  She is very curious and friendly. We miss her dearly.  I can be reached at 604-818-2592."
We are proud to be a Good Food Organization working towards a healthy and fair food system in alliance with Community Food Centres Canada.
