We are so, so, SO thrilled to be back outside for our very first outdoor market of the season this Saturday, May 4th from 9-1 behind the Visitors Centre! With a total of 31 vendors registered for tomorrow, we are anticipating another great summer ahead.

Many of your favourite local vendors will be back with a variety of products made, baked, or grown locally. Gluten Free Guilt is just one of our regular vendors coming out of hibernation this Saturday and she has some seriously mouth-watering gluten-free baking to offer. Check out her facebook page to see her weekly baking list and a drool-worthy pic of her famous chocolate cupcakes. Gunda Stewart of Orde Creek Pottery will also be back with her iconic wood-fired, stoneware pottery (pictured below).

The Peppered Pig food truck will be rolling in for this week’s market, ready to grill up some delicious local sausages and bacon from Root & Vine Acres. Nine am may seem a little early on a lazy Saturday morning, but trust me, their breakfast sandwiches are worth getting out of bed for. I can smell the bacon already!

In addition to 31 vendors, this week’s market will also be featuring live music by Velle Weitman’s music students, the talented Hannah Staggs and Trinity Antram. A seating area and kids play station will be located right across from our performers (and The Peppered Pig!), making the market the perfect place to come spend some time this first weekend in May.

If ALL that isn’t enough to entice you to our market this Saturday, we will also be running a give-away draw for a $25 market gift certificate! Swing by the market shed closest to the Visitors Centre to enter.
