Harvest Fest Features Local Food
Prince George, B.C. -The Prince George Farmers Market is planning what it hopes will become an annual event.
The Farmers Market features locally grown products as well as locally produced crafts, and is looking to grow in size, so the seeds were sown for Harvest Fest.
The special dinner and dance is set for October 29th and is aimed at raising dollars for an expansion of the current year ’round farmers market in downtown Prince George.
“We are hoping to raise funds to expand the market” says Association President Phillip Myatovic ” We would like to have something where there might be a food court in the middle, and artisans all around that centre court.”
The expansion plan could see the Farmers Market Association look towards finding a new building if the current space can’t be renovated to meet their future plans.
But expansion costs money so Harvest Fest was put into motion says Myatovic “The evening will include a dinner from locally produced foods, except for perhaps some of the desserts.” There will be a silent auction as well and the Association is hoping local companies will want to be part of this event by donating goods or services for that auction.
The timing of the Harvest Fest coincides with the first Northern Wine Festival, which will take place in Prince George from October 28th to November 5th.
Tickets for harvest fest are available at the Prince George Farmers Market at 6th and George Streets.
