Popular local musician Jeff Stevenson entertains on the market stage this weekend.  Jeff has a long and fascinating history in music and acting including playing one of the lead roles in the original 1969 Canadian production of the Broadway Musical “Hair” in Toronto!  Want to learn more Jeff? Visit his Facebook page (www.facebook.com/JeffStevensonLive/). Got tools or knives to sharpen? MidKnife Crisis is at the market this week.  Got pets?  Marsco Canine Crunchies and Missy Catnip are on the field.  Grater Whey, Sayward Lea Preserves, Van Isle Apiaries and Coastal Honey are back with us too! We’re also looking forward to seeing Captain Pete at the market.  It might be this week – we’ll let you know!

It’ll be a berry good day at the market again this Saturday – strawberries, tayberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, gooseberries, and currants!  I love our market from my head to-ma-toes – lots of tomatoes and fresh veg too. Looking for local protein for that special summer BBQ? Boughneath Farms (beef) and Country Wools (lamb) can satisfy your needs (still waiting to hear from Captain Pete). Bill Johnson, a local bluesman with an international following, graces our stage on Saturday.  “He’s an unsung hero of Canada’s  blues and roots music scene” (Holgar Petersen, CBC Radio, Stoney Plain Records). Want to learn more about Bill and his music? Visit his website at www.billjohnsonblues.com. Every Saturday morning, 9am – 1pm, Saanich Fairground, June – Thanksgiving weekend.
