About the Bowen Road Farmers Market
The Purpose of our farmers market is:
to bring people together, in the Nanaimo community, within the context of food, farming, health, nutrition and relationship. This also provides an opportunity for people to reconnect with themselves, each other, the earth, soil, water, air and sun which are some of the many elements employed by our local farmers and food producers, in order to bring some of the less than 6% of our food grown on Vancouver Island
The Vision is:
for all of us to become re-aquainted with our world and how our food, food production, and consumption of food fits into the world and all of it's people and creatures.
The Goal is:
that from this place of awareness, of the inter-connectedness of all things, that we continue to make individual changes, leading to cultural shifts, that move us all in a direction that is more harmonious and stable.
Please consider the products you buy at a farmers market and the people who bring these products for you to enjoy; the work, time, energy, consideration and love that was put into said product, that you then benefit from. Many of us work year round in rain and snow, heat and cold, in order to bring you these treasures after months of effort. Rain or shine, we bring the product to market. We hope that rain or shine, you will come to the market.
