Chef's Day at the market!

North Island Chef's Association president Lesley Stav and Chef Johnathan Frazier


This Sat. Oct. 18 from 9am to noon, join “Chefs at the Market” for a mouth-watering food tasting event that brings together local chefs and growers as they showcase fresh flavours of the fall bounty found ripe for the picking at the Farmers’ Market.

Chef Lesley Stav, president of the North Vancouver Island Chefs Association (NVICA), says this on-site collaboration between chefs and farmers is the perfect match to show market visitors the delicious connections between farm and fork.

The BC Association of Farmers Market's Farmers Appreciation Week runs September 8th – 15th, 2014 and will be celebrated at select farmers’ markets across BC. This week is an important time to reflect on the contribution that farming in BC has on all of us and on how we can support those who bring us healthy and bountiful food. “BC farmers are our best source for fresh, healthy, local food,” says Jon Bell, BCAFM President.
