WAPF Kamloops Chapter at Farmer’s Market on August 15 and 22, 2009

Where: 200 block of St. Paul Street, Kamloops, BC
When: Saturday, August 15 and 22, 2009
Time: 8:00am to 12:00noon

I will be at the Kamloops Farmer’s Market on August 15 and 22, 2009. I will have information about the Weston A. Price Foundation. There will be free brochures on a number of topics such as: real milk, trans fats, why butter is better, diet for cancer, alert on soy, and myths about cholesterol. I will have copies of the WAPF booklet which gives guidelines about healthy eating. This is a great booklet which normally sells for $1.00 but will be free at the market. This booklet is also good for giving to family members to help them understand more about nourishing traditional foods.

I have just received the WAPF 2009 Canadian Shopping Guide. It will sell for $1.50 and is full of information about Canadian suppliers of nourishing traditional foods. If you buy a WAPF membership or are presently a member, I will give you a Canadian Shopping Guide for free. Membership is $50.00 and includes the quarterly journal Wise Traditions and can be purchased at the market or you can go online and join. Membership is how WAPF funds their good works. They do not receive funding from industry. WAPF membership is not required to join in on local potlucks and informational sessions.

I will have the present copy of the Wise Traditions quarterly journal and some copies of back issues for sale. I have copies of the Wise Traditions special issue on Growing Healthy Babies and Heart Disease. There are fridge magnets for your favorite pregnant woman to help remind her to eat nourishing traditional foods. I will have some fun items like bumper stickers and buttons to tell the world where you stand!

We are having a free draw for Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions! If you would like a copy remember to put your name and number into our draw box. We will do the draw on August 22, 2009 at the end of market day and call the winner.

Hope to see you there!

Update August 22, 2009: It was great meeting people interesting in healthy food at the Kamloops Farmer’s Market. Our winner for Nourishing Traditions was Michelle Wells of Kamloops. For those of you that entered the draw but did not win, please remember we have donated a number of books to the Kamloops Public Library, Nourishing Traditions being one of them. There was a number of families interested in starting a Cow-Share Program in Kamloops. I will forward this list to a farmer interested in starting a Cow-Share Program. There was some interest in monthly potlucks and informational sessions.
