The idea to hold a Farmers Market has been buzzing in our minds since Chris and Lindsay from Bee Project Apiaries installed three hives on our Paterson GlobalFoods Institute in early July. They told us that at the end of the season we could expect to receive about 75 kilograms of honey.
“75 kilos of honey?!” we thought to ourselves. “What are we going to do with all of that golden goodness?” And just like that, our Farmers Market idea was born.
Students, staff and members of the community are invited to attend the Farmers Market on Friday, September 9th from 11-2pm on the Plaza level in between buildings DEF.
Our local line-up is growing everyday and includes vendors such as:
- Hearts & Roots
- Bramans Greens
- De Luca’s
- Nosh on This – gluten-free baked goods
- Red River College Bijou Urban Honey
We hope to see you there!
