The BC Association of Farmers’ Markets has launched a special campaign for July called Meet My Market.

The campaign encourages market goers to introduce a friend to their favourite farmers market for the chance to win one of two trips for two to Sparkling Hill Resort in the Okanagan. There’s also a social media component to the contest, where market goers can post photos to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #MeetMyMarket to win $50 at a participating market of their choice.

Rosslanders can enter by bringing a friend or two to the Rossland Mountain Market on Thursdays, and have the extra chance to win $30 in Rossland Mountain Market bucks at the end of the month.

“It’s just encouraging people to get excited about farmers’ markets,” said Mich Warwick, the market’s manager, “[and] introduce people to what’s so good about the farmers’ market.”
