Harvest Fest Features Local Food

Sunday, July 24, 2016 @ 6:58 AM

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.


This is a good news story.
Anything that promotes local agriculture, local food is all good.
