The Comox Valley Farmers’ Market hosts a successful Chef’s Day every August.Our fabulous North Island Chef’s Association comes out for the day and cooks up some amazing food for the market customers.They source all the products from the growers and producers at the market and customers come from far and wide to enjoy the tasty victuals cooked up by the chefs.Last year’s Chef’s Day was a veritable rainstorm, with the tent leaking onto burners and chef’s heads alike!In true Comox Valley form, customers still came out to support and they were well rewarded with loads of tasty treats!
Every Saturday morning, at exactly 9 a.m. market time, you will hear the sonorous tones of a bell ringing at the Comox Valley Farmers' Market.The market has officially opened for business, and vendors can begin to serve their waiting customers.
For the past 13 years it has been the well known figure of Glenn Miller (seen in photo), easily identified by his distinctive hat, ringing the bell. This past December, Glenn retired as market manager, and we were all sorry to see him go as he has always served the market with great ability and care. At a dinner held by the market membership in his honour, he generously donated the bell to the market, passing it to our new market manager, Vickey Brown.
Bell ringing to signify the start of the day has been a constant at the market since our beginnings 19 years ago. Danny Thran, first began the tradition and the bell he used was retired with him when he stepped down asPresident in 1999.
When Glenn took over as market manager he brought a very special bell with him. It was a gift from Glenn's father Art, to Glenn and his wife Roseane and Glenn thought that it would be the perfect bell for launching each Saturday markets' sales. Art Miller a former logger and an inventor, had taken an outdated portable metal spar that was used in the logging industry and with a lathe, machined a bell. And what a bell! It rings both rich and clear and now, thanks to Glenn, it has a permanent home at the Comox Valley Farmers' Market keeping our history and traditions alive.
For whom the bell tolls?It tolls for everyone at the market. Come hear and see this truly unique bell for yourself. The Market is open from 9-12 every Saturday until mid April at the Native Sons' Hall on Cliff Ave. FMI: check www.comoxvalleyfarmersmarket.com or call Vickey @250-218-0321.
