Wake Up To Yellow Recap

Disclosure: This post and my appearance at #WakeUpToYellow in Fredericton is sponsored by the Egg Farmers of Canada, but all opinions and stories shared are my own honest experiences.

Seems I’m always getting caught in the rain, but thankfully the bright smiles, cheery farmers, and yellow tents dotting Fredericton’s Phoenix Square for the Wake Up To Yellow event made the showers part of the fun.

Who couldn’t be cheering seeing all this yellow, even in the rain?!

And when there are adorable little people in raincoats handing you flowers, well, you know it’s going to be a great day!

The three-hour pop-up market was held on Thursday, June 6, 2019 and it seriously was so much fun, I’m still smiling thinking about it! Lots of friends popped by to say hello, and they walked away with bellies full of yummy local eggs, fabulous bright flowers, and even some goodies for the kitchen!

I love when I get to connect in person with folks I enjoy following online. Do you know Samantha? Her letterboard game is strong – almost as strong as her mama skills! She also shares some amazing recipes, including some with yummy eggs.

It’s also great when there are tables full of goodies to give out – look at all the egg-swag folks took home!

This was the first time the Wake Up to Yellow Pop Up Market made a stop in New Brunswick, but I certainly hope it won’t be the last. It was truly a fantastic morning, made particularly special by all the New Brunswick egg farmers on site to help share their passion with everyone who stopped to enjoy a warm breakfast sandwich. What a treat, getting to chat with the egg farmers themselves and see the pride on their faces and hear the stories of how they chose egg farming as their profession. If you happen to be in Charlottetown on June 19th, visit the Wake Up To Yellow market at The Old Triangle from 7:30am-10:30am!

Stacy Matheson was there with her children, taking a few hours off from working Grant’s Breeder Farm in Kars. It was so wonderful to see the pride in the younger generation, helping out at the event in what I’m sure is a similar way in which they help on the farm.

The Law family operate a farm in Belleisle Bay, with a long history of supporting farming and the community; Aaron’s grandfather was a founding member of the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency. I suggest checking Aaron out on Instagram for a great take on life in New Brunswick.

Like most moms, I rely on eggs as a quick, easy, and nutritious meal to feed the kids. In under 10 minutes I can have breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the table, knowing it’s packed with protein (6.5 grams per egg – a great energy boost!) and 14 nutrients. There were handouts at the event with great information and ideas: you can find some fantastic (and some fancy!) recipes to try on eggs.ca if you’re up for a little kitchen inspiration!

Little Miss Pickle loves a little ham with her eggs. 😛

This is the fourth year for the Wake Up to Yellow Pop Up Markets across the country; they still have dates to come in Charlottetown and St. John’s, so be sure to let your friends there know to be on the look out!
