Sainte-Anne Far­mer’s Mar­ket launches in­door sea­son

Meet and greet with mayor Sa­tur­day

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

A Sainte-Anne-de-Bel­le­vue far­mer’s mar­ket that is consi­de­red the first au­then­tic mar­ket of its type on the West Is­land of Mon­treal, will launch its in­door win­ter sea­son Sa­tur­day with a meet and greet with new­ly elec­ted mayor Pao­la Ha­wa, as well as the new town coun­cil.

The wee­kend launch of the 13-year-old mar­ket that has in­clu­ded six years of in­door and outdoor sea­sons, will al­so give vi­si­tors the op­por­tu­ni­ty to share cof­fee and conver­sa­tion, from 10 a.m. to noon, with the new ad­mi­nis­tra­tion.

Week­ly work­shops

And mar­ket coor­di­na­tor Pat­ti Mur­phy says pa­trons can al­so count on free week­ly work­shops that conti­nue an edu­ca­tion man­date the mar­ket has al­ways em­bra­ced.

“Mar­ché Sainte-Anne prides it­self on being more than just a mar­ket stop to buy your week­ly food,” Mur­phy said in a press re­lease, ad­ding the week­ly de­mons­tra­tion work­shops focus on food, health and the lo­cal and glo­bal en­vi­ron­ment. Guest ex­perts give on­site de­mons­tra­tions on sub­jects such as food pre­pa­ra­tion, fa­mi­ly he­ri­tage re­cipes or food re­la­ted to­pics of cur­rent in­te­rest. The li­neup for the new win­ter sea­son in­cludes: a Nor­thern Chi- nese Pot Sti­cker Dum­pling talk and de­mons­tra­tion on Jan 25, and a fea­ture de­mons­tra­tion on Ko­rean Kim­chi Pi­ckles on Feb 1.

The Sainte-Anne Far­mer’s Mar­ket, which ope­ned in 2001 with just eight lo­cal far­mers, was ori­gi­nal­ly foun­ded by agri­cu­tu­ra­len­vi­ron­men­tal ex­perts at McGill Uni­ver­si­ty’s Macdonald Cam­pus. To­day the mar­ket, which has grown to in­clude more than 30 pro­du­cers - ma­ny gra­duates of McGill’s agri­cul­tu­ral pro­grams - sup­plies hun­dreds of fa­mi­lies with their week­ly food. Shop­pers can find ar­ti­san and or­ga­nic foods in­clu­ding: ve­ge­tables, breads, cheeses, meats, eggs, ba­ked goods, soups, cof­fees, teas, meals, and more.

The Sainte-Anne Far­mer’s Mar­ket in­door sea­son will launch on Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St-George An­gli­can Church, Lo­wer Hall, 23 rue Per­rault in Sainte-An­nede-Bel­le­vue. For in­for­ma­tion go to: mar­ches­teanne@gmail.com, or call 514 831-3333.
