Kitsilano Farmer's Market

Today I rode my bike to the Kitsilano Farmer's Market to do my shopping for the upcoming week. I love going to markets of any kind and this one is great. Tons of fresh produce, organic coffee to start you off, and much more to enjoy.

Some of the high lights of my adventure this morning were the bike valet, it is by donation and I love the fact that I am valeting my bike! There is also a by donation bike tune up station put on by the UBC Bike Co-op, I learned my bike needs some repairs so I will be taking her in for a real tune up next weekend.

I really enjoyed tasting all the different cheese at the Little Qualicum Cheeseworks booth. I grow up in Qualicum Beach and I love supporting local products. I bought a block of the Rathtrevor Cheese, named after the provincial park in Parksville.

I got some local honey, made from the pollen off blueberry flowers, it taste like summer! I also enjoyed some candied ginger and fruit jellies from Bad Girl Chocolates. Very tasty!
It was a great start to a wonderful Sunday, now I am off to the beach!!
