SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest photo by Gary Hynes Victoria, BC, May 5, 2011 — Moss Street Market is excited to announce the start of its 20th season offering local farmers, artisans, crafters, bakers, cooks, musicians, bodyworkers and more a place to exchange their goods and services in a friendly neighbourhood atmosphere. The Market supports a sustainable local economy and while providing opportunities for outdoor fun and connection with family, friends and neighbours.The Moss Street Market began as a dream of a local farmer named Morris Lamrock when he attended a farmers market in Eugene, Oregon and hoped to create a similar market in Victoria. He joined other local farmers Mary Alice Johnson and Tina Fraser in brain storming and planning. Their idea was 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 educate all of us through communication and mutual support.Still going strong and staying true to it’s roots, the Moss Street Market is proud of it’s “Make It, Bake It, Grow It” philosophy. All products at the market are made and sold directly by the producer. The Market maintains it’s community neighborhood flavour by keeping a careful balance of craft, food, farm and service vendors, complimented by folksy musicians, special event days and of course 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 the Market each spring to have a chance to buy direct from producers, whether it’s farm produce, a tasty lunch or handmade handicrafts. Here’s the details….When? every Saturday from May to October from 10am to 2pmWhere? at the corner of Moss St and Fairfield RdWhat?
