Tastes of the Farmers’ Market

Amata Transition House partners with makret to send kids to camp

Members of the Amata Transition House board were busy at the Quesnel Farmers' Market offering tasty tidbits.

Fun was had by all on a beautiful sunny day at the Farmers’ Market, June 25.

Once again customers had a taste of a variety of foods produced by the farmers around the Quesnel area.

How fortunate we Quesnel residents and visitors are to be able to access such fresh and healthy produce and other food products grown right here.

A big thank you to our farmers and all the Farmers’ Market vendors.

The market customers were pleased to be served breakfast and lunch by the board of directors of the Amata Transition House. The board members prepared the food provided by vendors as a fundraising opportunity for the Amata Transition House. Tasty sausages, stone oven baked bread, delicious jams, garlic scape pesto, healthy soups and salads, fresh fruit and a variety of East Indian treats were on the menu. Market customers also enjoyed cheesecake and chocolate Chip banana bread for dessert.

We the board would also like to thank the crafters of the market for their generous donations toward our raffle.

The board members of the Amata Transition House would like to thank the Quesnel community for the generous donations we received at the market.

Because of your generosity we are able to support women and children in need.

This year we are able to send two teenagers to camp – an adventure of a lifetime, that will never be forgotten.

See you again next year for the third annual “Taste of the Quesnel Farmers Market.”
