Nanaimo Events – 7th Annual Bowen Road Farmers’ Market 2014

Events Nanaimo

Wednesday, August 27 to Wednesday, October 29, 2014 — 7th Annual Bowen Road Farmers Market — 4 to 6:30pm at Beban Park in Nanaimo, BC

Focusing more on the idea of an actual “farmer’s market”, the 7th year of local Vancouver Island agriculture producers is scheduled for August 27 and will continue to be held each Wednesday until October 29.

Aiming to connect the community, these farmer’s hope to increase the percentage of people buying within a 100 mile radius as now only 6% of the food we eat is locally harvested.

The BRFM was started by a group concerned about our quickly changing world, the loss of rurality, food production, food sustainability, and the connection to the earth. Weekly, there are featured musicians, and a wide variety of friendly vendors and excellent products, produced by organic growers, who transport their food within a 50 mile radius. 

Come and meet the people who grow and produce the food you eat. See you soon!
