Shuswap Farmers' Market Begins May 16th
The Shuswap Food Action Society became a charitable organization in January of 2020 with the focus of helping people access healthy food.
Spokesperson Serena Caner says their farmers’ market kicks off May 16th, “That’s where local farmers can come and sell their food. And they're also going to be selling food plants, so if you have your own garden you want to start then you can buy the plants.”
Caner says small scale farmers typically use more sustainable methods of farming, but don’t meet the quotas to be selling to grocery stores.
