Steve Duck from TIDES Group will be at the Peninsula Country Market this weekend to promote Pumpkins on the Pier.

CENTRAL SAANICH — The final Peninsula Country Market of the season takes place this Saturday, Oct. 11.

“As part of our developing Festival of Squash we are partnering that day with Steve Duck of TIDES Group to help promote the fundraising event Pumpkins on the Pier,” said Bob Thompson, the manager of the Peninsula Country Market.

Thompson continued to say that the market will be bringing in a pumpkin carver to do carving demos that day and that the market’s growing Pyramid of Squash will be on display.

“Yellow Point Cranberries plans to be here with fresh Island cranberries, as well as our farmers with lots of squash, and we’ll all be entertained by Out Stealing Mules,” Thompson added.
