It's Harvest time! Apples, pears, berries...produce...the farms on Salt Spring are showcasing product at the Saturday Market and at the Tuesday Farmer's Market...and stocking their farmgate stands.
Cideries, wineries, craft brewery, cheesemaker's delights...the bread bakers, the tarts and pastries...the pies.
Restaurants showcase special menus, using the organic and local Island grown fare.
Lucky Salt Springers! The 10K diet is alive and well.
Farm to table dinners are fundraisers for the agricultural community.
September brings the Fall Fair and Apple Fest. October brings Canadian Thanksgiving (an authentic Harvest celebration) and Sip & Savour.
Late Summer and early Fall offer many warm and sunny afternoons...cooler mornings and evenings...later sunrises and earlier sunsets. "A season of mists and mellow fruitfulness", in the words of the English post, John Keats.
A lovely time of year...enjoy the largesse of Salt Spring's tranquil harvest season. It's underway right now!
