Bikes, fairies, flowers and more at this week’s market!

A big thank you to all those that came out to Hirut for our volunteer orientation dinner on Monday night. We had a good turnout, an amazing meal, and some truly great conversations.

Market time!

This Thursday, June 1 is the first farmers’ market of the season. We are in East Lynn Park from 3 til 7, rain or shine. Here’s what’s happening:

Community Booth

In our weekly community booth, 32 Spokes will be on hand to do light tuneups on your bikes.

Kids’ Activities

As mentioned in an earlier post, we will be painting wooden fairy doors with the author of the Princess Lily series  , starting at 4pm.

Glitter tattoos, sponsored by Karina Sadu at Homelife Realty, will also be happening in the kids’ tent!

Rotating vendors

In addition to our usual slate of amazing vendors (see the list here) we are welcoming Queensdale Flowers and Bata Maple Syrup to the market this week! Queensdale Flowers will have local, sustainably grown cut flower products: fresh bouquets, everlasting (dried) bouquets, wreaths, pins. Bata Maple Syrup will have maple syrup and grass-fed beef from their farm just east of Toronto. And our first brewery of the season will be Left Field.

See you at the market!
