Red stained fingers are the give away the Harvest Supper is coming.

Each year Kelly Parking, the Harvest Supper co-ordinator and her husband Chris, make about six litres of cranberry sauce for the dinner.

Chris picks through tens of thousands of cranberries carefully selecting the best.

“All of the food came from local farms and is cooked on site,” said Parkin. “It’s a celebration of the harvest.”

An assortment of vegetable dishes from fall harvests and a variety of salads will be served along with lamb, ham and turkey. The Harvest Supper is a partnership between the Luxton Station Market Society and the Church of the Advent.

“We buy all the food from the farmers, but this year the farmers have offered to give us some food or give us deals,” Parkin said. “We don’t try to get donations from our farmers because this is their livelihood and we are here celebrating it.”

Everything served at the dinner is local with the exception of brown sugar and black pepper.

The sixth annual Harvest Supper is on Sept. 23, at the Church of the Advent, 510 Mount View Ave. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 6:15.

Tickets are $17 for adults and $13 for seniors and youth. A family pass is $55 and includes parents, children and grandparents.

 

Tickets can be purchased at the Goldstream Station Market on Saturday or call Parkin 250-507-5767.
