It is officially fall and our market is officially ready with all the wonderful goodies fall brings! The weather will finally be a bit cooler this weekend which makes for per market shopping. We open at 8am and close at 1pm. There is lots of time to visit our covered, accessible market with lots of free parking!

We have a new feature at the market. A book exchange is now being run by Tichelaar Orchards located next to the ATM. Bring a book, take a book & you can grab a coffee or a tea and a book to read while you sample some of the wonderful eat in foods like breakfast sandwiches at Lovin’ Oven Bakery, Thai food from Napha Kerr or hot fresh apple fritters and fries at Aberfritters.

We have a new busker this week as well. His name is Bob MacLean. He will be playing at the market for most of the rest of the season. Check out his website: www.bobmaclean.ca

We have a new vendor Table Top Gardens joining us for the first time. They produces beautiful succulent planters for your table tops. Drop by and pick up a plant or two. They make perfect hostess gifts too!
