Falls Official Start

Welcome back! As we embrace the subtle arrival of cooler weather, it's hard not to notice that unmistakable touch of fall in the air. The leaves have started to fall and change colour, mornings are now greeted with crispness, and evenings are certainly chillier. Although the official start of fall isn't until this Saturday, September 23rd, I'm not sure about you, but I have been embracing all things fall.
Now, let's take a moment to look back at the past week. Our always vibrant farmers' market was on Saturday, a weekly delight from 8 AM to 1 PM every Saturday. Then, on Sunday, our Multicultural Market unfolded its magic. Featuring various vendors, unique artisans, and captivating live performances, it is always a fun day.
As we eagerly anticipate the upcoming weekend, we have one more spectacular festival in store: the Pizza Fest. Picture an evening filled with delectable food vendors offering tantalizing slices of heaven, complemented by the ever-enticing allure of fine wines. Join us for an unforgettable event this Saturday from 4 PM to 11 PM. I don't know about you, but my taste buds tingle with excitement!


Tristin Morningstar, a true visionary in her field, is the creative force behind the Bowls. Her journey is deeply rooted in a family tradition that spans generations within the bustling Market. Both her grandfather and mother operated their own booths here, making the Market not just a place but a cherished part of her upbringing. Within these bustling aisles, her passion for fresh, locally sourced ingredients and sustainable practices began to flourish.

The Salad Bowl, now an integral part of the Market, has flourished for nine remarkable years, a testament to Tristin’s unwavering commitment to excellence. But Tristin’s story took an enchanting twist when she decided to enhance her thriving establishment by incorporating the irresistible allure of ice cream into the mix. The result? A delight of flavours that transformed the Salad Bowl into an even more beloved community gem.

Yet, beyond her culinary prowess, the sense of family and community truly defines Tristin’s connection to the Market. With a beaming love that radiates from her own family to the vendor family, the Market embodies a sense of warmth and togetherness that’s unparalleled. It’s a place where cherished memories are made, and the community bonds grow stronger with each passing day.

In the heart of the Market, the Salad Bowl stands not only as a testament to Tristin’s success but as a living testament to the enduring spirit of family and community. For those seeking a meal that feeds both the body and the soul, the Salad Bowl is more than just a restaurant – it’s a cherished gathering place where passion, tradition, and a commitment to sustainability come together in perfect harmony.

Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Centre will be out at the Farmers Market this Saturday. Salthaven is committed to the care and rehabilitation of sick, injured, orphaned or otherwise compromised wildlife; our goal is to return healthy animals to their natural habitat. Through education we are dedicated to increasing public awareness about and respect for the issues affecting Canadian wildlife.

On a busy day we receive 150 phone calls for sick, injured or orphaned wild animals. One hundred and twenty volunteers are taught how to care for the needs of over 1,200 wild animals that find their way to Salthaven’s clinic in Strathroy, Ontario. Patients require varying degrees of rehabilitation, but they all require the financial support of the community to help with surgeries, medications, food and housing. We are extremely grateful for your support that helps us, help you, to keep the wild in wildlife.

Mary Ashton will be performing outside on the Rotary Square this Saturday from 8:30am to 10:30am.

A violinist, a fiddler……it depends on the day, season, venue, or fellow musicians, Mary Ashton just loves to make music with her violin. Hornpipes, jigs or reels aplenty, a dash of Greek or Arabic song  and some soulful renditions of classics like “Summertime, all spring from her violin with energy and joy.


Fiker Kirubel and Nathan Kerr will be performing outside on the Rotary Square this Saturday from 8:30am to 10:30am.

Fiker is a 24 year old singer, songwriter, and musician. She has been playing music and writing songs since the age of 13. Music/singing has always played a huge role in Fiker’s life, so she has always tried to remain in spaces where the people around her feel the same. A perk is Fiker gets to play music with her husband who is an incredible musician and creative as well. Together, they love to play, and listen to, all genres of music including rock/alt-rock, R&B, pop, early 2000s punk/pop-punk, folk, and indie.
