Italian Market At The Italian Cultural Centre Friday June 19 With A Little Extra Italy

9 Jun

ItalianMarket2015Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre invites you to celebrate Italian Heritage Month with them at the Italian Market on Friday, June 19th. The Italian Cultural Centre is located at 3075 Slocan Street (at Grandview Highway) in East Vancouver and has a number of great events taking place this month, so be sure to check out their website to see what they have lined up.  Although the night market runs every 3rd Friday of the month from 3:00 to 7:00 pm until November 20th, the market on June 19th will have a few extras.  There will be the usual produce grown locally including Fresh Roots and Glen Valley Artichoke Farms with artichokes, fresh greens, beans, tomatoes and herbs as well as Farmhouse Natural Cheeses, Sweet Thea Cakes with fresh pies and baking and Stepping Stone Bakery will have biscotti, cookies and squares. You can also expect to find fresh fruit, vegetables, handmade products by local artisans as well as food prepared by Il Centro’s Chef including house baked breads which will be available for purchase.  Take note seed lovers, Fresh Roots will also be conducting a seed exchange at their booth. So you can bring your seeds to trade with others attendees.

The Italian Market will also be hosting two local wineries, Kalala Organic Estate Winery and Township 7 Vineyards. And if that isn’t enough to make you come out, they are welcoming back Bella Gelataria who will be selling their gelato and Demiani Fine foods will be on hand with an assortment of pasta sauces, olive oils and balsamic vinegar and Orazio’s Olive Oil will be sampling their products. And if are wanting to learn to cook your pasta ‘just right’, Peter from Pasta Familga will be doing a pasta making demo from 5:30 to 6:15 pm which will cover all the basics. There will also be an outdoor ‘bistro’ set up where you can sit down and enjoy the food and live Italian music featuring Gianni Fuoco. There will be a few food trucks on hand for your dining pleasure including favourites Via Tevere Pizzeria Nepoletan and the Cannoli King with fresh filled cannoli, Sfogliatelle, chips and dip as well as Hotties with fresh pasta.  We expect this will be another great market. See you there!
