Farmers’ market considered for Sandspit

  • Jan. 28, 2011 4:00 p.m.

New Moresby Island Management Committee member Emmy O’Gorman is putting feelers out for a Sandspit Farmers’ Market. She’d like to hear from at least six people who would be interested in being vendors. Ms O’Gorman raised the topic at the Jan. 12 MIMC meeting and suggested that if it’s a go, the market could join the BC Farmers’ Market Association. This group provides insurance for small markets around the province. To start, she’d like to keep costs low for vendors. “It takes a while for this kind of thing to get off the ground,” she said. To be a member of the BCFMA, all items for sale at the market must be grown, baked or crafted. The group also offers courses on making markets safe. Ultimately, she said, the goal would be to ask MIMC to pay for the $200 a year membership.Content Copyright Haida Gwaii Observer 2011
