Second Market Location Opens Thursday, July 6
Jul 4, 2017
The Market will add a second location and day to its hours of operation beginning Thursday, July 6, 2017.
In an effort to better accommodate customers, The Market will open Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the corner of Paris and York streets in the North parking lot. Parking will be available across the street in the South parking lot. The Elgin Street location will continue to open, rain or shine, Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Elgin Street.
As a special welcome, the first 200 guests to the York Street location will receive a free, insulated tote bag with special vendor information and surprises inside.
Local growers will feature a variety of products, including fresh-picked local strawberries from Beaulieu Farms, bedding plants and fresh herbs and greens from McGrow’s Farms, sprouts, greens and pastured organic chicken from Three Forks Farm, and a variety of fresh local and Ontario produce from Geo-Green Growers and Freskiw Farms.
La Baguette Magique will offer baked goods featuring local produce, including vegan and gluten-free options. Nish Scon will be there with a packaged bannock/scon mix (just add water!), and the Perogy Princess will be bringing produce, preserves, and of course, perogies!
Craft vendors will offer many delights including stretchy natural stone bracelets from Plain Jane Crafts, hand-crafted toys and home décor items from String Things, originally designed natural solar lighted creations from new vendor Peggy Quinn, bath foam rocks and hard sugar scrubs from Tree Top Bath and Body. Hand-woven treasures by Linda Roy Landry, warm and soft socks, insoles, knitted treasures and more from Dare 2 Dream Alpaca Products, and not to be missed, “throw-back Thursday” pricing on soaps: five for just $20 from Old Soul Soap Company.
