January 30, 2020
Last year we ran a pilot project for kids programming to test out the waters. It was such a success that we have hired a coordinator to join us for two hours every week and organize a craft table. Many of you will be familiar with the Dotsy craft table from past market festivals. There will be a different theme each week, so make sure to bring any and all young ones in your life for a great Saturday activity.
Two classic features of the weekly farmers’ market are returning this year as well. Live music and cooking classes!
We have created event pages online so you can stay up to date on who is playing at what is happening each week.
La Houlette De Vie (French Pastry and Sourdough Bread)
Helm Baked (Gluten Free Baking)
Blanbrook Bison Farm (locally raised bison, jerky, roasts, steaks, ground and more)
Dave Dekay Beef and Lamb (locally raised beef and lamb from the Komoka area!)
Lynch Maple Farms (2019 maple syrup available, as they gear up for the 2020 sugaring season!)
Greystead Gardens (small scale market garden vegetables grown by Dave and Dominga)
Morsels (Lorraine makes amazing savoury pastry each week for us to enjoy, get a quiche slice for breakfast this week)
Pillitteri Winery (Meet Terry and learn about the amazing Ontario family winery, find the perfect pairing with some cheese from Glenda’s downstairs)
*Please note, this is the “off season” for farming. At our weekly Saturday farmers’ market we pride ourselves in being a producer only market, with a minimum of 51% farmers. For this reason, our vendor base is much smaller in the winter, and vendors come and go as the product is available to sell. If you want to support local THIS is the market of choice! Thank you for supporting our vision and we will see you this weekend!*
