We’re on vacation this week, so you’ll just have to excuse the combined market and pop-up shop posts. Once you have a read, you’ll see that they actually fit quite well together.
Here’s another photo from the fabulous market for the photo contest courtesy of Jen. Thanks, Jen (and mysterious redhead who enjoys peas)!
Did you get to check out the T.O. Ceviche Bar last week? If not, you’re in luck. They had so much fun in our neighbourhood last week they’re coming back for more. Lucky us! Fish tacos, fish kabobs, sweat potato burgers!
This week will also feature celebrity chef Lynn Crawford! She will be joining Primeridge Pure and making the cheesecake featured in the Ace Bakery cookbook using Stacey’s Grey Rush cream cheese. Stacey just had her baby, so I’m not sure whether we can expect to see her this week. Congratulations Stacey & family!
And in more farmer news, everyone should test the fresh strawberry smoothies available from O.K. Farms. Delicious and nutritious!
At 4:30 pm our Silly Goose Kids friends will be making ‘crafty bands’ picture bracelets for all those junior crafters.
Be sure to watch for the roving Yummy Stuff staff handing out free samples at the market this week. You’ll be able to spot them by their white aprons and the crowds of happy people around them. If you haven’t checked out our pop-up shop yet, Thursday is the perfect opportunity. Morag’s shop, right across from East Lynn park, will be open until 8 pm.
Don’t forget to send your best market pictures to events(at)danfortheastcommunityassociation.com. We’ll repost all the picture at the end of the season and vote on a winner!
Finally, if you’ve seen those Stop Line 9 signs around and wondered what it was all about, come chat with organizers at the market this week. They’ll be there with information on what is being planned for the oil pipeline and what their concerns are.
The East Lynn Farmer’s Market runs every Thursday from 3-7 p.m. between June 6 – October 17 at East Lynn Park, located on the south side of Danforth Ave, just west of Woodbine Ave. Stay up to date by visiting the new East Lynn Market Facebook page.
