Posted on Thursday, August 13, 2015
The Pemberton Slow Food Cycle is only 3 days away! To help you get more familiar with this year's event, we've prepared a quick bio on each farm + vendor participating in the event. There will be 11 official stops along this year's route, with several vendors located at various farms along the way. In total expect to see 25 - 30 different vendors offering everything from fresh produce, locally made jewelry, local artwork, fresh baked pastries, locally sourced meat and poultry, coffee and much more!
If you have yet to pre-register for this year's event make sure to do so by clicking here. Registration only costs $5 per person or $20 per family. If you don't pre-register online you can always do so the day of the event at the old Community Centre Parking Lot along Pemberton Meadows Road. We encourage online registration as registering on event day often leads to line-ups.
Pemberton Valley Supermarket
The Pemberton Valley Supermarket will have a tent set up at the aforementioned registration area. The supermarket will have coffee, breakfast wraps, water and snacks available for purchase for your ride. We always encourage riders to pack a snack and water with them as they don't know when they'll be able to find food and drinks throughout the day.
Collins Cross Farm / Bandit Farms
Grab some lovely fresh flowers from this pit stop, or stop by the garden and pick up some fresh mixed veggies, eggs or garlic. You can also catch live music while you sip on a freshly squeezed lemonade juice. Collins Cross Farm will also be the host site for Solfeggio Foods, Pemberton's popular holistic foods establishment.
If you've got a craving for some fresh pies and baked goods then don't pass by Courthill Farm. The farm will also be offering freshly picked blueberries and flavoured water.
Plenty Wild Farms
Stop by Plenty Wild Farms and grab some fresh organic produce, refreshing lemon treats or tasty tomatoes. The kids will also get a kick out of visiting the pasturing sheep and pigs on the farm.
This is your first chance to grab a quick bite before you make your trip up the Valley. Choose from an assortment of food from Antipasti Catering & cold drinks. The farm is also offering an array of homemade soaps.
Miller Bench Gardens
Check out some artwork from local artist Kylie Millar + a display from SPARK Kombucha & Whistler Candles. You can also grab some fresh veggies or preserved veggies at this stop!
Simply Delicious Bakery & Garden
Home to some of the best-baked goods in town you can also find an array of maple products from Viosin's Maple Products. Wash all your treats down with some refreshing lemonade or coffee.
Across the Creek Organics
Kind of the staple stop of the Slow Food Cycle, Across the Creek is always a beehive of activity each year. With so many options will just lay them all out - Across the Creek Organics will offer; Organic Potatoes, Pemberton Distillery stand, Willowcraft stand, Seed to Table stand, Split Rock stand, Environmental stand, Pete's Pies stand, Collective Kitchen Gourmet stand, Mana Farms stand, Poole Creek Farms stand, SIP Smoothie Co stand, Thirsty Whale Elixirs stand & the Pemberton Arts Council stand - where you can find art from local Pemberton artists + children's art workshop activities.
Pemberton Meadows Natural Beef
Natural Beef is the sole provider of beef for local restaurant Mile One Eatery. Makes sense then that during the event Mile One will be setting up a burger stand here to feed hungry bikers along the way. Grab some great burgers for only $10 and check out a stand featuring local soap maker Lone Goat Soap Co.
Eddie's Corner is the other big stop on the Slow Food map. At Eddie's Farm you can find sausage on a bun, dried Pemberton cranberries, Salt Spring coffee, fresh honey, kids lemonade stand, live music & live wrestling matches! Bike decoration, feather hair extensions by Hailey, MaaMalas & homemade gift cards, country kids games and bee hive visits.
Camel Back Harvest
Pemberton's newest strawberry growing farm, you can find berries, fresh veggies, potatoes & garlic at Camel's Back Harvest....
