A Fresh Take on Living and Supporting Local
Someone wise once said, “You have to love yourself before you can love another.” It’s a really nice thought, but what does it actually mean? At West 5, we believe that loving yourself means being mindful of the food you eat, how you treat your own mind and body, and the company you keep. In other words, you have to nourish yourself in order to be able to nourish others. That’s one of the reasons we created the West 5 Farmers Market. It’s a chance to give to yourself, while at the same time giving back to your community.
The fruit and vegetables you can buy at our Farmers Market are the freshest and most flavourable produce available, picked at its prime by local farming families from your community. Buying local means the food you’re getting is the freshest it’ll ever be and that your family can enjoy the satisfying sweetness of jams and honey made nearby.
You can also brighten your home with beautiful flower arrangements and home decor items, carefully crafted by our local artisans and florists. From hand carved wood signs, to unique jewelry, to all-natural soaps and greenery wreaths, West 5 Farmers Market has it all. Enjoy the pride in purchasing handmade products, crafted by members of your own community.
What’s more, shopping at a Farmers Market is a pleasure, not a chore. It’s something the whole family can enjoy together. Soak in the sunshine on a Saturday morning amongst community and friends, discover new foods, share recipes, and connect with the growers face-to-face.
That’s what West 5 Living is all about. The pursuit of a better tomorrow by living better today. It’s part and parcel with our commitment to the environment, sustainability, and to you, our community. And as our vibrant community grows, so too will our Farmers Market. Come see for yourself, join the other 1,000 market shoppers we had at our last event who support buying local. It only gets better from here.
