THE FARMERS’ MARKET UPDATE and UPCOMING EVENTS

Saturday, August 17, 2013 - 10:00am

This year’s Farmers’ Market was opened by Stephen Blais and his family on June 15, and in spite of some cloudy Saturdays has been as popular as ever.  Over two Saturdays at the end of June and beginning of July  Book Sales raised $600 for the Kidney Foundation and the Market itself, and another such sale will be held on the Labour Day weekend – all book donations gratefully accepted.

Other upcoming special events at the Market include a Corn Boil on August 17th and an Art-in-the-Park showing, with ten local artists participating, on August 24th.  With local produce now flourishing the Farmers’ Market should become a habit for Saturday mornings, starting with the excellent breakfasts served between 8 am and 1 pm  by various community organizations.
