Fall Fair all about plants and animals

The Sooke Fall Fair will be celebrating it's 100th anniversary in 2013

  • Apr. 17, 2013 12:00 p.m.

It’s all about “PLANTS AND ANIMALS” at the next Sooke Fall Fair flea market, Saturday, April 27, 10 – 2 downstairs at the Sooke Community Hall.

Find out about the new heritage classes in the Produce and Livestock Sections commemorating the Fair’s 100th anniversary. Heirloom tomato seedlings will be sold market day along with information on what the master gardeners look for while judging. Also learn about heritage poultry breeds and how to enter your purebred or backyard bird.

Dr. Amanda Booth who has judged the livestock section for more than a quarter century has an enthusiastic team of helpers at the Saseenos Vet Clinic and will be organizing this year’s Pet Parade.   The triplet goats at Mrs. Lewers’Farmhouse will surely be amongst the parade entourage.

As planting time is just around the corner think “heirloom” this year and go for the special Keeper Trophy.   A wide variety of heirlooms are also available at ALM Farms, 3680 Otter Pt. Rd. ,the location of Harris House, also celebrating 100 years… sale time coincides with the flea market.

Proceeds from the market and sales from the spring quilt raffle will be supporting the Centenary Cookbook project. The lucky ticket will be drawn market day.
