Each Saturday at the waterfront, the Ste-Anne’s Farmers’ market will offer 25 lucky customers a food gift from the ‘featured vendor’ of the week thanks to a $10,000 donation from Desjardins West Island.
HOW? Customers will sign up for the program at the Welcome Kiosk and receive a cotton shopping bag and a reward card they can use to redeem for a total of 5 free gifts at the market this summer and fall.
The first 25 card-holders to arrive at the featured stall – which is marked by green and white balloons, will receive the free item, as long as they show their card. Last week 25 customers received a tin of local maple syrup.
WHEN? The market opens at 9:00 AM and runs until 2:00 PM each Saturday – rain or shine. Customers can sign up for the card and receive their shopping bag at any time. But if they want the gift –of-the-day, they are best to arrive at the market at 9:00.
WHY? Desjardins West Island is keen to continue its support of grassroots community endeavors like the Marché Ste-Anne.
