The Market this week: Mid Season Check-in

We’re about half way through the 2015 farmers market season. What a perfect time to give a shout-out to our many amazing volunteers. Every week we have a crew of people donating their time to help make Thursday evenings so enjoyable – DECA booth volunteers, people helping with set up and clean up, face painters and cooks. And this year we’ve also had volunteers join the social media and graphics team. To all of you – THANK YOU!  If you’re interested in learning more about volunteering with us, send us an email.

It seems we may have a slight break from the heat tomorrow – calling for ‘only’ 29C.  Perfect weather for cooking some corn on the BBQ? Maybe some fresh peaches for dessert? We’ve got plenty!

Face-to-Face games will also be at the market with fun games for all starting at 3:30 p.m.

  1. I would LOVE to see a weekly flower person!! The couple at the East York farmer’s Market are fabulous!! They come in from Peterborough every week with the most gorgeous cut flowers and country bouquets from their garden. A farmer’s market is just not complete without a fresh flower grower.
