Eggstravaganza

October 4-8

 


 

This October, we’re celebrating eggs with our annual Eggstravaganza event – virtually! All week, we’ll be doing fun things online including a GIVEAWAY called “For the Love of Eggs” where we’ll send you a gift to help you enjoy eggs even more.

Friday, October 8 – It’s World Egg Day!

We’ll be hosting a free event at Old Market Square in Winnipeg from 7:30 a.m. until 10:30 (or when supplies run out) – what better way to celebrate World Egg Day than with a FREE egg sandwich?

Join us at the corner of King St. and Bannatyne Ave. and grab a delicious egg sandwich and a coffee on your way to work. Say hi to our egg farmers and feel free to ask any questions you might have about eggs or farming – but no pressure, feel free to grab and go! There will also be a chance to win some egg-themed goodies at our booth.

FYI: This event will follow all current COVID-19 restrictions and our farmers will be masked, with hand sanitizer available for public use. Thanks to our partner, Red River College’s Paterson GlobalFoods Institute, for preparing the egg sandwiches, and to Tim Hortons for the coffee!

It’s going to be the best Friday this year. See you there!
