Market fundraising event fun for foodies

The Royal City Farmers Market will be kicking off its seventh season with an annual fundraising event May 21.

It's too help their advocacy work and participate more within the community. It will also help fund a bursary to New Westminster secondary grads entering food-based fields as well as help the market to have a more inclusive space for seniors. The market also wants to make the children's area more interactive with environmental and food-themed activities.

The fundraiser will be held at the new Hub Restaurant at the Shops at NewWest Station starting at 7 p.m. Along with food from executive chef Michael Knowlson, there will be a silent and a live auction.

The 2014 summer markets will run every Thursday, from 3 to 7 p.m., June 5 to Oct. 9 at Tipperary Park on Fourth Street next to city hall. For more information and tickets go to
