farmersdotter garlic scape salt is available. We begin by removing scapes from the garlic plants in mid June.
It takes a little while for farmersdotter to process the scape but we always have it available at the Penticton Farmers Market. We have viable scape salt at the farm that is four years old so no worries about shelf life.
By mid July new stock arrives at our retailers who are all listed on Our Retail Partners tab. Drop in on these folks and consider supporting them. Supporting local is a good idea. Supporting us and helps to keep Bunty Cat fat!
The Penticton Farmers Market consistently offers some of the best produce and artisan crafted foods in the province and all within the 100 block of Main Street in Penticton. Impressed visitors from Vancouver have mentioned that there isn’t anything on the lower mainland to compare.
Its time Organizers and Staff, primarily Executive Director Steph Sundquist get the weekly tip ‘o the hat, congratulations and Sunday Salute from farmersdotter.
The Market seamlessly glides through each Saturday from May 1 to October 31. Steph is first to arrive and last to leave. Clipboard in hand, smile on her face and usually a story or two. She ensures vendors get to their stalls on time and she coordinates inquiries with diplomacy and flair. She engineers a well oiled machine.
This holiday season the Penticton Farmers Markets has been extended to include December 15th and 22nd at the Shatford Centre. Plan to attend if you can. We love the whole buy-local, eat-local, vote with your wallet thing. Cheers and thanks!
