Did you visit the Farmers’ Market last week?
East Lynn Park was hoping last week with 5th Anniversary celebrations. A new giant Scrabble board was unveiled for market goers literary leisure. A broccoli suit was added to the crop of crazy costumes. Our local city councillors, Mary Margret McMahon and Janet Davis were on hand to welcome the crowd and to help with the official ribbon cutting. The weather was amazing with many picnic blankets sprawled across the park. For those not inclined to show up with their picnic basket pre-packed with dinner, Lazy Daisy’s Cafe will be a regular at the market this year offering many prepared options, such as, quinoa salad, grilled panini sandwiches, pastries and coffee.
Many people have been asking where Lincoln Line Orchards, more commonly known as the apple guy or Peter Bosman, is this year. Unfortunately, the wacky weather early in the year had a devastating effect on his orchards causing over 1,000,000 pounds of lost apples. This is not only a huge loss for our market but also for his family business. Peter tells us that he’s already looking forward to coming back to East Lynn next year as it’s one of his favourite farmers’ markets.
Coming up this week: CareerFitMom will be at the park at 4:30 to host a PlayFit class for the little ones to enjoy. And don’t forget pioneers behind the BabySteal/Kid Steals deal websites will be having a meet up in the park at 2:00-3:30 p.m. For more details about the meet up check out the event page on Facebook.
