Farm gate sales 2014

Last year I went in search of Farm Gate Sales in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.  This year there seem to be even more eggs, blueberry stands and berry U-picks all the way up and down Old Dewdney Trunk Road in Pitt Meadows.  Our agricultural adventure today took us past a number of local farm gate sales.  We found delicious blueberries and raspberries at Hansra Farms, BC new potatoes and Swiss Farmer sausage at Hopcott Premium Meats, fresh peas from the Little Fruit Stand, a cauliflower at Meadows Fruit Market, and fabulous cherries at Red Barn Plants and Produce.  We were delighted to find a couple of potted herbs as well at Red Barn, long sought -after Winter Savory and a Lemon Verbena.
