 Market Highlights



The Strawberry and Raspberry seasons have overlapped this year. The strawberries are at peak season – ripe and sweet. Raspberries are looking good also.


This week we welcome back Magnetite Jewelry by Gina for her first Wednesday appearance this season.


BC Hydro PowerSmart is in the market to talk about their energy saving programs.


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 entries 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 prize pack we’re calling the Abbotsford Fun Pack. See details on page 2 of the newsletter.
