Coast folks flocked to celebrations of the land and its people with the Fall Faire at Roberts Creek Hall on Sunday. The One Straw Society’s annual event featured a traditional hand-crank cider press that poured out apple juice with the efforts of volunteers and with donated apples.
Kids carved pumpkins and made “fruit and veggie folks,” while everyone enjoyed the Fall Faire a super Coast tradition super offerings of fabulous music from local talent, and had fun catching up with friends and neighbours.
Tables laden with appealing crops of seasonal vegetables, fruits and herbs were quickly selling out along with flowers, plant starts, seeds and many innovative homemade products.
One Straw Society reps spoke of community and our relationship with food, farming and the importance connecting with one another. Harvest blessings were offered and appreciated by all who participated.
The Wednesday Farmer’s Market will continue throughout October at the Roberts Creek Hall at 3pm with local produce and valueadded homemade products for sale as well.
