Our roster of local growers is expanding this Saturday with Market veterans, Beaulieu Farms bringing local strawberries fresh-picked that morning.

Northern Produce will be also be at the Market with Ontario-grown produce of all kinds.

Look for hanging flower baskets, greens, sprouts, organic pastured chicken, maple syrup, and a growing array of other local veggies coming from our area farmers.

Honey Berry Farms will be bringing a demonstration hive this Saturday so everyone can watch the bees at work (safely behind glass).

We also have food fit for a Canada Day celebration from Canadian butter tarts and Canada Day cookies from La Baguette Magique, as well as authentic Polish fare including perogies, cabbage rolls and chicken kabobs from the Perogy Princess. Hot meal combos are just $5.

Nish Scon will be offering a unique packaged bannock mix.

Other vendors offer a selection of meats, cheeses and desserts, with enough variety to give you and your whole family a Canada Day feast to bring home!
