Thank You For Making the Long Long Table a Success!

The Downtown Surrey BIA would like to say thank you to all who came out to the Long Long Table last week at Civic Plaza – we had a great time, and we hope you did too!

We lined up 25 (!) fold-up tables side-by-side to create one massive table, which sat almost 200 people for the community event.

Civic Hotel catered the event, with Chef Liban Shirwa and his team preparing the full five-course meal. First up was a charcuterie board, followed by a delicious summer frisée salad and then a panna cotta palate cleanser. The main course soon followed, with spiced vindaloo beef accompanied by potatoes and a rice pilaf. A delightful vanilla bean mousse dessert finished off the meal, leaving stomachs very full in the process.

The course that got the night started – a West Coast charcuterie board!

Steve Dooley was our MC and guided us through the evening – introducing all the meals and directing the games that were played in between certain courses, such as our trivia game.

Swing Patrol! provided musical entertainment throughout the night, with their upbeat swing music adding a nice atmosphere to the night.

This event could not have happened without the support of all our sponsors – we are grateful for all of your help in making the Long Long Table 2019 possible.

Produce, Food and Artisans, Oh My!

The Surrey Urban Farmer’s Market is in full swing and all the vendors await your visit.  The lure of fresh produce should entice any taste buds, while the baked goods, unique gifts and book exchange should tempt any passerby to stop and look.

The Downtown Surrey BIA office is already addicted to the large boxes of inexpensively purchased and locally grown strawberries.  The baked goods have already racked up great reviews and Intern Marie has bought some basil for her much anticipated pesto pasta.

The Market is located at the NORTH SURREY REC CENTRE COURTYARD (below the Surrey Central Skytrain Station) every WEDNESDAY from 1 pm – 6 pm.

For more information, visit the Surrey Urban Farmer’s Market website.  Make sure to also follow them on Twitter and join their Facebook group.
