WHISTLER, BC April 24, 2015
@Whistlermarket Farmers’ Market Artisans, Crafters and Food Producers unite under an umbrella of creativity at Whistler’s Great Outdoors Festival (GO Fest).
This Victoria Day long weekend, May 15-18, outdoor enthusiasts can compete in a favourite sport, explore new outdoor recreation options, and enjoy legions of nature-loving artists’ work as the Whistler Farmers’ Market hosts a special early season market.
“We just see it as a perfect opportunity to add to this weekend and draw more people to the Upper Village,” says Chris Quinlan, Whistler Farmers’ Market manager.
The farmers’ market opens for regular seasonal hours on June 21, but will host a special GO Fest market with 50 vendors working with the Upper Village businesses to provide the festival feel GO Fest has honed.
Alongside the pocket pies from Golden Crust Baked Goods, mead and honey from Campbell’s Honey Farm and Meadery and berry-topped, gluten-free funnel cake, from Whistler Funnel Cake, will be a new sausage vendour from 100 Mile Ranch, the Snitchel Shack and the Caveman Grocer. For the chocolate lovers in the crowd, Chocohappy will put their talents on display with a selection of their truffles and caramels and The Pie Company’s meat pies and Old Country Perogies should satisfy the savoury food buff’s cravings.
Artists and artisans showcasing their wares will include Mudslide ceramics, GDC Woodworking, Dihedral Designs bags and luggage and Vancouver impressionist Tom Anthill—to name but a few. Henna Tattoos by Manta will be on hand painting hands and there will be Tarot Card Reading by Roxanne, top baby clothing designers Chubby Love and Kiki Kidswear, and tastings from the B.C. Wine Studio and the Dragon Mist Vodka.
