Edible Vancouver explores Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows

IMG_1726The ever so lovely Edible Vancouver magazine has a delightful article about exploring the “almost shockingly beautiful” communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows in its Spring 2014 issue.  Claire Livia Lassam travels out to see us from East Vancouver in her article, “A Pitt Lake Paddle.”  Her adventures remind me what a fabulous place we live in and how lucky we are to enjoy this little corner of paradise where it is difficult to chose between day trips to Pitt lake, the dykes, or Golden Ears Provincial Park (and that’s just for starters), all surrounded by white-capped mountains and fresh air.  Some of her foodie highlights include our own fabulous Big Feast Bistro (11920 – 227th Street), Golden Ears Cheesecrafters (22270 – 128th Avenue) and Hopcott’s Premium Meats (18385 Old Dewdney Trunk Road).  I would have included the Haney Farmers Market (Saturdays from May to November in the Memorial Peace Park) and Bruce’s Country Market (23963 Lougheed Highway) but I suppose you can’t fit everything into one day trip!  Lucky us to live here.
