Market to Pantry #25: Powell River Open Air Market, British Columbia

Powell-river-4

From Kevin, in Powell River, British Columbia (Canada):

This is the Powell River Open Air Market, in Powell River, BC. It's a mix of foods (vegetables, baking, freshly ground flour and home-made pasta, canning, honey, oysters, occasionally meat and cheeses), flowers and plants, and crafts, and has a very popular open mike stage and social areas.

Powell River has a very active local food scene with an Edible Garden Tour in August, several community gardens, restaurants which feature local foods, and the 50-Mile Local Food Challenge (currently running in its 6th year). I used to sell veggies and plants here  and still enjoy visiting and picking up some of the veg we don't grow ourselves.

This is my daughter and me at our very first market in April 2004, so you get the view from behind the counter. Other pics are from a shopper's point of view.

I tip my hat to you and youir fellow growers and am thankful for your presence for without you I would live on pizza!

Looks beautiful!

But for pizza you need tomatoes, so you still need us for that :)

I'm so glad you shared this, Kevin! The next time I am visiting my good friends in Comox, I am going to make the extra drive to Powell River. I'll watch for you and your daughter at the market!

Looks WONDERFUL! thanks for sharing

What a lovely setting for a market! I like that open mike stage - great for amateur musicians.
