There will be lots of excitement this Saturday at the Peninsula Country Market (1528 Stelly’s X Rd.)…
And don’t forget, the market goes every Saturday from 9 -1 until Thanksgiving weekend.
We’ve been working hard in the fields and some of that hard work has been turned into something refreshing.
Our friends at Riot Brewing Co. have concocted a delightfully refreshing Black Currant Blonde Ale, crafted with our berries.
It’s slightly tart with a refreshing fruity finish – the perfect way to end a long day.
This limited edition brew won’t last long, so don’t miss it!
We’re so excited to announce that we’ll have Black Currant Scones again at the Saturday market!!!
We’ve partnered with Sidney Scones (check her out on Instagram, you’ll be drooling!) and we’re happy to say we’ll have these beautiful scones every Saturday at the Peninsula Country Market, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Saanich Fairgrounds.
But make sure you come early because we have a feeling these tasty treats won’t last long!
You can find your Favourite Farm Girl this weekend at the fifth annual Island Mavins Handmade and Vintage Market.
The market is Saturday (July 22) from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sunday (July 23) from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Boganes Farm, 2734 Island View Rd., in Saanichton.
The cost of admission is $3 or $5 for both days and parking is free at the site.
We’re officially picking!
While we may have just started – and some of our varieties aren’t quite ready just yet – that doesn’t mean you should wait to give us a call because our fresh fruit goes quickly!
If you would like to place an order for fresh currants (black, red, white), gooseberries (red, green), josta berries or cherries, please give us a call – 250-652-5227.
If you live in the Central Saanich area, keep an eye out for our white and red cherry signs (you can’t miss them around Stelly’s Cross Road) and if you see them, you’ll know the stand is open with freshly picked cherries.
We’re also at the Peninsula Country Market every Saturday until October at the Saanich Fairgrounds, 1528 Stelly’s Cross Rd., from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Otherwise, our stand is open by appointment, so please call ahead (250-652-5527), we wouldn’t want you to make the trip and not have what you’re looking for.
We’re starting to see some colour in those berry rows!
We’ll be at the Peninsula Country Market today from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Saanich Fairground, 1528 Stelly’s Cross Rd., in Central Saanich, so don’t forget to drop by and see your Favourite Farm Girl while you’re out celebrating Canada’s 150th.
We’ll have the first berries of the season and of course, our famous Black Currant Concentrate. Pictured below are our summer pudding baskets. This week’s include black, red, and white currants, red gooseberries, and josta berries (a cross between a currant and a gooseberry).
If you miss us at today’s market, give the farm a call (250-652-5227) to place an order because these fresh currants won’t last long!
Those of you waiting for cherries, they’re not quite ripe yet. We’ll keep you posted!
