Explore | Farmers’ Market Season Is Upon Us!

And I’m a happy girl! It is no secret that I, Sarah, absolutely love farmers markets. My love has not faded throughout the year, no it’s just increased. This year I have been to two so far and I am so stoked to visit them all. This past weekend I went to the Cedar Farmers Market. It’s the largest one in Nanaimo and has a host of amazing things. This week I bought strawberries, and a raspberry twist pastry and some eggs! To make a day out of it my sister and I went to the market which is located on the field grounds outside of the Crow and Gate Pub, then went to a new secret beach. The beach is called Elliot Beach and it is located at the end of Brenton Page Road. It’s a secluded little spot that is great for swimming, exploring, snorkeling and sun tanning.
