Our First Outdoor Market!!!

The annual Easter Market has arrived and we are so looking forward to it. Farmers, Flowers, Bakers and artisans will fill the market square this Saturday 8-1. We will also be celebrating Easter with some fantastic kids programming, and live music. Spring is in the air and things are in motion. This past weekend at Blanbrook Bison Farm the first calf of the season was born, while over at Alton Estate Wineries 5 lambs were born. These exciting signs of spring are the perfect way to begin market season.

Kids Scavenger Hunt

This year, we are trying something new. Instead of a typical Easter Egg hunt, we have created a questionnaire. Tour the market and meet the vendors to find out the answers to all the questions. Upon completing the hunt, return to the table to spin a prize wheel for a choice of sweets from The Chocolate Factory! We will also have a colouring table set up for all ages to enjoy.

This will begin at 9:30am!

Parking and Construction

Downtown London is going through some major changes. We are so happy to see the results on Dundas St. closest to the market. Here is an image of current street closures. Luckily the construction is moving past us and the market is much easier to get to than it was last year. You can also follow the link for a better photo and updates: Click Here
