Shuswap Food Action Society envision Saturday morning community hub at Ross Street Plaza
“Seeds have been sown for a new farmer’s market in downtown Salmon Arm that organizers hope will grow and flourish.
The market is being coordinated by the Shuswap Food Action Society (SAFS), with the support of Downtown Salmon Arm and city council. The planned start date is June 22, and it will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays until Sept. 21 at the Ross Street Plaza.
In a letter to Salmon Arm council, SAFS president Serena Caner said the purpose of the new downtown farmer’s market is to “increase access fresh local food; provide new farmers and food producers a place to sell their products; build community around local food; and promote transition to a more resilient and sustainable food system,” writes Caner.”
