SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestVictoria, BC, April 26, 2012 — Mayor Dean Fortin will ring the opening bell at 10am on May 5th to officially start our regular season and celebrate Moss Street Market’s 20th anniversary. The Fairfield Community Market Society (operating as the Moss Street Market), a non-profit society, was incorporated on May 6, 1992. It began as a dream of local farmer Morris Lamrock looking to open a farmers market in Victoria similar to one he had visited in Eugene, Oregon. Joined by local farmers Mary Alice Johnson and Tina Fraser, they began planning to bring about a place to bring community together in an atmosphere of fun where local farmers, foodies and arts and crafts people could sell their wares directly to the consumer. They felt the links in the community would grow stronger with the one-on-one contact between producer and consumer and bring everyone together through communication and mutual support. 20 years later Moss Street Market is still thriving and true to its roots as being a local organic farmers market with a “Make It, Bake It, Grow It” philosophy, supporting sustainable local economy. All products at the Market are made and sold directly by the local producer. The Market maintains its community neighborhood flavour through a balance of farm, food, craft and service vendors, complimented by local musicians, special event days, and the annual Moss Street Paint-In. With a little something for everyone, Moss Street Market is a favourite of its Fairfield neighbors and the larger Victoria community. Many Victorians eagerly await the arrival of Moss Street Market each spring to have a chance to buy direct from local producers, whether it’s farm produce, a tasty lunch, or handmade handicrafts.
