I have recently been hired by the Moss Street Market here in Victoria as the Assistant Coordinator for the year. I'm super excited because we attend the market every year, it is essential to us being able to maintain our local diet. We buy our cheese, mushrooms, eggs, honey and berries there. I just would not have the time to drive around to all the farms to track these things down. We love it. Plus we usually just hang out and enjoy the community spirit (and maybe have some local salmon burgers and doughnuts). I'm thrilled to be part of the team that makes this popular market so successful.
If you are in the Capital Regional District and you haven't visited the market, come and visit us. I know there are many summer markets but it's always fun to visit different venues. We are located at Sir James Douglas School in the playground at the corner of Moss Street and Fairfield Road. The market runs every Saturday from May 1st until October 30th from 10am to 2pm.
If you already attend the market or you live in the area, we are looking for volunteers. It is a great way to help out local farmers and artisans and if you are already coming to do some shopping why not stay and lend a hand and help make the market run smoothly.
If you are interested in volunteering or would like to learn more about the market visit http://www.mossstreetmarket.com/ or leave a comment for me here and I'll get back to asap.
