BOWEN ISLAND'S FARMERS MARKEThttps://www.facebook.com/BowenFarmersAndTailgateMarkets?fref=ts
Buy your Fresh Produce on Bowen.
Lucky for you Bowen has its own locally grown Farmer's Market open every Saturday, June - October. Located at the School just past the 4 corners.
TWO EE'S ORGANIC MARKEThttp://www.wegroworganic.ca/
Part of my routine when driving up from Seattle to Bowen is to stop and shop at Two Ees Organic Market in Surrey to pick up my farm fresh produce. What a treat!! I can certainly taste the difference between 2 Ees’ versus grocery store lettuce, spinach, and broccoli. Can you?
What I really LOVE is the price of the red peppers……ONLY 99 cents per pound… You can buy 3-4 for just a $1 unlike at home where they are always $1.25 PER pepper.
The Bowen Island Pub serves up a great juicy, tasty, burger with plenty of options to dress it up or down. Add in the freshly made coleslaw and hand cut fries and your hunger pangs disappear.
BONUS ~ If you love burgers make Thursday night your out to dinner night at the Pub ……..Special ~ 2 burgers for the price for 1.
For my Gluten FREE friends, the Pub now offers salads with your choice of protein adds. My NEW favorite delish dish is the Salt and Pepper chicken wings!!
THE SNUG CAFÉ and CATERING
443 B Bowen Island Trunk Road ~~~ 604 947 0402
|The Snug Cafe is more than just a coffee shop|
The Snug Cafe is a small rickety old building (I call it charming) that is almost as old as Bowen Island itself. It is more than a coffee shop and far greater than a breakfast and lunch cafe. The Snug is an institution, a meeting place, a cornerstone of our Bowen community.
MY NEW FAVORITE ~ THE ROYAL
Eggs scrambled with dill, cream cheese, avocado, and smoked salmon over gluten-free toast and fresh fruit.
|My new favorite, The Royal|
On those mornings when dashing for the ferry I like to leave the accommodation 1 hour prior to my sailing, get a parking spot in the ferry line up close to the Snug Café and pop in for coffee and breakfast.
Lunch choices are equally as satisfying
ARTISAN EATS CAFÉ and BAKERY
539 Artisan Lane ~~~ 604 947 0190
Artisan Eats is a bright and airy café with a modern country décor boasting amazing views of the mountains, ocean and forest. They serve French Bistro fare, delicious breakfast & decadent brunches. This is a great spot to pick up your made from scratch croissants, pain au chocolate, muffins, country breads plus more all freshly made by Pastry Chef Michael.
COCOA WEST CHOCOLATIER
Tuscanyhttps://www.tuscanypizza.com~~~ 604 947 0550
My favorite table at the Tuscany is upstairs just outside of the kitchen. There you can watch Will prepare and plate all the specialty meals being served. His plating is artful and the flavours yummy.
|Another Tuscany piece of art - fresh beets and pork belly|
