It comes around only once a year - so take this opportunity to ride those roller coasters and eat those mini donuts! I've already polished off one bag this season as well as some incredible BBQ at the Rib Fest happening at The Fair this year. We also spent an hour touring the farm barn visiting animals (omg miniature horses!) and finding out about how food gets to our table. There's entertainment (and food) for the entire family, make the PNE a stop before it's all over on Sept 3rd!
PNE is currently running until Sept 3rd, 11am-late (11pm)
Squamish Farmers Market
Is this the weekend I make it out to visit the Squamish Farmers Market? Maybe! My never-ending quest for markets have taken me all over the world, yet I can't believe I haven't made the drive up to visit this one. One of the great upsides to this market is that you'll be visiting vendors from 'the North' and getting the pick of Pemberton! The weather is supposed to be beautiful, so maybe I'll see you there?
Saturday Aug 25th, 10am-3pm, corner of Cleveland and Victoria
