Written By Guest Writer Edibles / Food Events Mar 6, 2012 Love a Farmer: Support Local Food, Farmers…and Beer! SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestCome join the Victoria Downtown Public Market Society at Canoe Brewpub for an evening of great film, farm-folks, and local food and beer! The VDPMS has paired up with Canoe Brewpub (450 Swift Street) to show a great new documentary on the rise of the local food movement called Ingredients we’ve sweetened the pot by inviting Brent Warner (Executive Director of Farmer’s Markets Canada) to tell us about the economic benefits of farmers’ markets on local economies. Additionally, because doing this much good is thirsty/hungry work, Canoe will be offering free samples to the new Belgium beer they’re launching that night to accompany tasty treats from three VDPMS farmers’ market vendors – Cold Comfort, Cowichan Pasta and Vancouver Island Salt Company – as well as Belgium waffles by Canoe. And don’t miss the local food basket and other goodies in our raffle!! $10 tickets will be available at the door starting at 7pmAll proceeds will go towards the establishment of a downtown public market.
