NOTES FROM A SUNNY SATURDAY

Finally! Last Saturday was a day without rain for the Market. You may have noticed the bright yellow numbers on the path where the Market is held every Saturday.  These mark the location of individual vendors, some of whom are at the same place each week.  This week we begin a number by number introduction to our members and regular vendors:

#1 Cedarstein Farms, Heidi, a long-time member of the Market, brings certified organic vegetables such as lettuce, carrots, cabbages, leeks, onions, beets and more. All locally grown and freshly harvested.

#17 Eric, another long-time member of the Market family, has an ever changing array of tools, books, canning jars and new-to-you items. If you’re looking for something, chances are Eric has it or can find it for you.

Butter Tart Festival Contest update: we’re pleased to let you know that Rogers Foods Ltd. of Armstrong has become a partner in the Festival. Contestants will receive a 10% off coupon on butter tart ingredients from Rogers upon signing up for the August 27 contest.

Lost your glasses? If you’ve misplaced your glasses and were at the Market last Saturday, I have them.

BAT HOUSES

BAT HOUSES

The rain held off, and the Saturday Market was busy. Donna’s wish, posted on Around the Block Lumby, was fulfilled; John Brown came with handsome, affordable and home-made bird and bat houses. The bat house will make a great addition to the bird; bee and butterfly houses already up in our yard. What next? A tiny house by Rouck Bros.? New vendor Iva Wiens was there with colourful and very fine maxi skirts, dresses, rompers, palazzo pants and active wear. Most of our vendors ignored the incorrect weather forecast (though it did rain just as things were winding down).  Campbell farms had apples and there were lots of apricots, peaches, cherries and fresh veggies on offer. Stephanie Noakes from Clinton dropped by with dream catchers, chocolates and Guatemalan coffee beans. A good time was had by all. BAT HOUSE
