Demonstrations planned for & against Revelstoke farmers market

Demonstrations for and against decision to remove Wild Flight Farms from Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market planned for Saturday morning.

Wild Flight Farm's future at the farmers market is the subject of two demonstrations this Saturday

Demonstrations both for and against the decision to remove Wild Flight Farms from the Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market are planned for Saturday morning.

Both groups plan on meeting outside the community centre this Saturday, Apr. 8, at 10 a.m., ahead of the market’s annual general meeting.

Those against the decision will be protesting a decision they say was made without consultation of the farmers market membership and the community. 96 people have said they will attend the event on Facebook.

Meanwhile, a second demonstration hopes to show support for the board’s decision to exclude Wild Flight Farm. It asks people to support the board’s decision to provide a “diverse, ethical, honest” market. Only 14 people have indicated they will attend that event on Facebook.
