Saturday at the market

The Bedford Farmers’ Market, situated at 67 Place-Dr-Adrien-Tou gas in the heart of the historical town, will be opening on Saturday, June 16th.  The Market is in its fourth year and runs from 9AM to 1PM, rain or shine every Saturday until September 15th.

This is a time to celebrate and support local food in the Bedford area. Become a “locavore” this summer and challenge yourself to eat only what grows and is produced within a 100 km radius from where you live.  Consider the “food miles” that are invested into your food.  How far are the foods that you eat transported ?  What are the economic, social and environmental costs of this transport ? Considering a “local food” diet helps not only to strengthen our regional economy but can help to keep your family healthy as well, getting to know the farmers who grow your food and consuming farm fresh produce. The Farmers’ Market provides a variety of locally produced and freshly picked vegetables, fruits and farm fresh eggs. For the first four Saturdays, from June 16 to July 7, Serres Ste Anne will have plants available for your gardening needs.  There will be handmade crafts, jewelry and local artists as well.  Bring your family, meet your friends, stock up on delicious in season produce.

Concert June 16th at 11AM

Opening day will be celebrated with a special concert given by the students in the “option-passion” music program of École Mgr-Desranleau. They will present a varied program of instrumental music and song.
