Who’s ready for spring?!? If you’re a Winnipeger, you know this has been a harsh winter even for the toughest winterites! Between the frigid temperatures, the abundant amount of snow, freezing pipes and potholes…we need a lift! Well we happen to have it with the First Annual #LoveLocalMB event happening on Saturday, April 26 from 5 – 9pm at the Winnipeg Winter Club.
Yes it’s been a harsh winter, but you still LOVE Winnipeg, so we want to showcase what this fine province has to offer with the first indoor, pop-up style Farmer’s Market…complete with music and booze.
There will be over thirty local Manitoba food, beer and wine vendors showing off their delicious treats and singing the praises of buying local. Your $10 ticket gets you in the door and a complimentary glass of vino. Spend the evening sampling the foods, and purchasing your favorites.
And what’s a solid Manitoba event without a charity to enjoy the benefits? We are so excited to be giving all proceeds from this night of fun to “Our Food Our Health Our Culture” Program. This Program aims to promote healthy, nutritious, and traditional foods in three communities in Manitoba – La Ronge, Fox Lake, and Winnipeg’s North End. This fundraiser will focus on the North End community piece, which includes:
1. Weekly cooking classes to teach kids about healthy and traditional foods and food skills
2. A community tables program to enable community leaders to provide healthy snack programs for kids
3. A healthy eating project to help North End residents find healthy and affordable food in their community
This program empowers individuals and communities to grow, share and prepare their own food and provides them with skills they can use for life.
Event partners of course include the Fit Communications ladies, along with Bessie’s Best, Gourmet Inspirations, Buy Manitoba, Food Matters Manitoba and Slow Food Winnipeg. So come get your spring on with us and have some fun!
