Squamish Summer Farmers' Market
Turnip the Beet & Lettuce Dance!!
We’ve got another fantastic market planned for this Saturday, with every booth filled with fantastic produce, prepared food, arts & community connections!
In O’Siem Park, beside the market, the District is putting on the first annual ‘Celebration of Music’. There will be lots of great musical performances all day long! The celebration begins with a 10am outdoor Yoga in the park, and all day, there will be arts and crafts for the kids. This is a free community event, though donations are welcome with all proceeds benefitting Music Heals, a charitable foundation that supports a wide range of music therapy services to communities in BC and across Canada.
Fresh Picks Tip of the Week: How to get the best out of the season’s tomato harvest…
Keep unripe green tomatoes, stem side down, in a paper bag or in a cardboard box in a single layer. Place in a cool area until they turn red in color.
Perfectly ripe tomatoes should be kept at room temperature on the counter away from sunlight. Make sure they're in a single layer, not touching one another, and stem side up. Consume within a couple of days.
Overripe tomatoes that are soft to touch with very red flesh are best kept in the fridge. The cold air will keep the tomatoes from ripening more, and they should last for another three days. Before eating refrigerated tomatoes, take them out of the fridge and let them come to room temperature. This will allow the fruit to develop some of the flavor it has lost due to refrigeration.
Jana Seale is taking care of music at the market this Saturday. Enjoy her fantastic rhythm as you roam the market, and sit for a visit. Owen and the Drummers are starting the show at 10am. Come for the food & arts, stay for a fantastic venue of local music and talent!!
