Possibly June 2020
**NOTE: FARMER’S MARKET DURING LOCKDOWN*
“Overall, it’s a shop and don’t stop,” quipped Anthony Obersteller, president of Goldstream Farmers Market. “Once customers buy their items, they’ll have to head out shortly after. It’s very different from what we’re used to.”
Notably, the BCCDC has included specific instructions to have one entrance and one exit, restrict the tasting of any food samples and keep adequate space between each booth.
Organizers were supposed to have the Goldstream Farmers market prepared to go by Sunday, May 10 for Mother’s Day weekend, but they now say sometime in June looks more realistic.
Until then, Obersteller said they’re waiting on a response from Langford city council to support placement of barricades at the event to help enforce social distancing measures.
The Market supports and promotes a sustainable and vibrant local agricultural industry and artisan community by providing an outlet for the farmers and artists of Langford and West Shore. Local musicians and entertainers provide atmosphere throughout the day and non-profit groups share their community stories.
If you grow it, make it, or bake it, come sell it at Goldstream Farmers Market in the heart of downtown Langford.
