ECO MARKET at the Canadian Centre for Inland Waters
“Are you going to be here everyday?”
That seemed to be the recurring question asked when representatives of Hamilton Eat Local joined Judy MacDonald from Farm Fresh Country Market at the Burlington Green Team's annual Ecomarket. The Ecomarket is held annually during Environment Week, in the auditorium of the Canadian Center for Inland Waters (CCIW) on Lakeshore Rd.
Judy had two long tables full of fresh produce from local farmers to sell and plenty of delicious recipe ideas. She literally brought the farm-to-table freshness of market shopping to the workplace, which coincides with this year’s market theme of Living Green. Everyone was pleased to get their grocery shopping done during their lunch break! An average of 800 employees pass through there during their workday from Environment Canada and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
Thanks to Cheryl Tinson and the Burlington Green Team for organizing the event, and inviting us to join in your effort to make a difference. Also thanks to Judy for being such a great promoter and provider of fresh local produce. Visit the Farm Fresh Country Market in Stoney Creek (390 Barton – Barton and Millen Rd)) to get your local produce all year round, and look for Judy at the Hamilton Mountain Farmers Market on Saturdays in the Sacred Heart Church parking lot (Viewpoint and Mountain Park Avenue)
