Just a reminder that we will be unveiling the winners of the FarmAde photo contest tonight! We hope you can make it to this special community potluck at Sprouts and cast your ballot for the people’s choice picture. Did we mention that voters will be rewarded with Sprouts’ famous fair trade, vegan chocolate brownies?
If you can’t make it to tonight’s potluck, please be sure to swing by Sprouts over the next two weeks. A dozen beautiful images from the talented FarmAde photo contest entrants, including the three below, will be gracing the walls of the cafe until mid-October. They will also be sold at Sprouts as a fundraiser for the UBC Farm.

We’re pleased to welcome you to the 9th annual FarmAde this Friday, Sept 16 from 3-8pm! Our free-admission, all-ages event serves as a celebration of food, music and community at Vancouver’s very unique urban farm. Where else in the city would you find audience-participation square dancing, children’s potato sack racing, belly dancing and farm-fresh food at one event?
This year, we’re excited to feature:
- Vegan, vegetarian and local, free-range beef burgers
- Smoothies & juice from The Juice Caboose (organic, vegan, gluten free and soy free)
- Farm-fresh corn and organic UBC Farm veggies
- Organic, fair trade baked goods from Sprouts (vegan options)
- A beverage garden featuring handcrafted brew from East Van’s Storm Brewing
Many thanks to the generous support of the Alma Mater Society, Student Care, University Neighbourhoods Association, and UBC Transportation Planning. Looking forward to seeing you this Friday!
