Kick off the long weekend by joining us tomorrow behind the Visitor Centre for our October 10 Modified Farmers’ Market. You’ll find all the essentials for a perfect Thanksgiving Dinner that feature the bounty and abundance of our beautiful Valley.

You’ll find squash of all shapes, sizes, and colours at Chopko Market Garden’s booth, and broccoli and brussel sprouts from Cartwheel Farm. Try honey glazed roasted carrots using heritage carrots from Spectrum Farms and local honey from either Swan Valley Honey or Pure Honey Products. There are plenty of recipes online if you haven’t tried something like this before, but here is one that I’ve found that guarantees success:

Honey Glazed Carrots

A bottle of bubbly from William Tell, or a bottle of wine from either wineries is also a must. Let Maggie of Maggie’s Creations handle the baking for you. Make sure you arrive to the market before all of her popular pies are sold out!

Thanksgiving is often a time of reflection and offers an opportunity to look back on some of the warmest memories of the year. Although this year’s festivities may see a smaller group around the dinner table, may you cherish a full harvest of blessings, good health, good times, and of course, good food! From all of us at the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market, we hope that the good things in your life be of abundance not just at Thanksgiving but all year long.

Don’t forget that we’ll be outdoors until the end of October this season. With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, you better believe we will be hosting a spooktacular market in response! Follow us on facebook for more information on this soon.
