Farmers Market Season Begins! Plus a new surprise for Newton -Panorama !


Surrey Urban Market    

The Season Begins!

Like many of you , I eagerly await the  arrival of local farmers markets .  
I love seeing all the luscious veggies and fruit,  smelling the fresh baked bread  and other handmade goodies.  
It's also a great way to try new products from  local artisans and craftspeople. Last year I discovered a line of homemade body lotions and soaps  that are divine!

Surrey 's Urban Market opens this Wednesday. I often don't get a chance to make it to the City Centre location, but when I do I have come home  with a bounty !
That's why I am THRILLED that Surrey Urban Market will be closer to home at Surrey City Hall every other Thursday from 11-2pm. 
As you know, ReNewton began with a public awareness campaign to encourage the new owner of the former Public Market site at King George and 64th to bring back the once loved public market. The original one back in the 80s was the best!
I hope that  South Newton -Panorama- Sullivan  residents will support this new location to show that a permanent market can work in our community!

From the  folks at  the Surrey Urban Market: 

For the past three years we've tested out a smaller version of our full market at Surrey City Hall. We are ready to make it official and starting in late June, we will be set up in Surrey's City Hall every other Thursday from 11 am - 2 pm. The market is open to the public - just park free in the City Hall visitor parking lots. We'll have 4-5 stalls featuring produce, fruits and prepared goods
