 Market Highlights


A new vendor for us at the Abbotsford market is Clayburn Comforts Soap and Body Works. Sue makes all-natural body care products and sells them from historic Clayburn Village.


Valley Gold Honey joins us for the first time this year. This local honey producer has just started pouring the always popular clover honey.


Also check out the nutrition information booth. This space will be occupied each week by the Abbotsford Community Services Best for Babies program and has information in Punjabi as well as English.


Your free copy of the new Edible Vancouver Magazine is at the Market Info Booth. While at the booth fill out the entry for our weekly draw for something special from one of our vendors and the monthly draw (by donation to the Abbotsford Food Bank) for a vendor super pack with about $300.00 worth of products.

A couple of our vendors have been showing up with garlic scapes. Customers aren’t sure what to do with these particular greens, so we’ve grabbed a couple recipes from the vendor tables and added them to this newsletter. By the way, scape is the botanical term for a long leafless flowering stem rising directly from a bulb or rhizome.



Garlic Potato Salad


Garlic Potato Salad


  • 6 cups new potatoes (cubed)
  • 6 garlic scapes, minced (important to mince the scapes)
  • 1 cup green onions (minced) [turns out fine if you skip this ingredient, consider adding more scapes]
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

 1. Boil new potatoes in water until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.



2. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Add cooked potatoes and stir to coat. Chill about 3 hours before serving.


Servings: 6
