It is time to celebrate September! And there is no better way to celebrate than going to the Aberfoyle Fall Fair! And to make it an extra special weekend we have moved our September event (previously known as Savour September) to coincide with the fall fair. Access to the market on Saturday will remain free and we will be open for extended hours. You can shop all the awesome local goodness from 8am to 3pm on Saturday.
We have planned some fun things for this weekend. We will have a local home chef on hand preparing yummy simple dishes using market ingredients. Stop by for some samples through out the day. Let’s Talk Science will also be back with interactive activities for kids of all ages. And our own local daycare Whistle Stop will entertain the kids at their booth too.
This is the last weekend Wagyu World will be available at the market. Pop by for a hot dog or their special offering of Beef on a bun. After that you will need to contact them directly for access to their pure Wagyu meat and hot dogs.
A busker from Bands Fur Animals will entertain us with amazing music. These musicians are always amazing.
Here are some of the amazing produce you can find at our market this week:
