SATURDAY MORNINGS WITH THE PENINSULA’S FINEST!
June 3 – October 7, 2023
AND SUDDENLY, THERE WAS ONE: THANKSGIVING SATURDAY, OCT. 7th IS OUR FINAL MARKET OF THE SEASON!
The Sept. 30th market was wonderful, sunny, happy, full of food and friends and music. Our final market looks to be even better: it’ll be our biggest market of the year, with almost all of the vendors we’ve had over the season coming together to close it out with everything you’ll need to get you through the winter – the amazing bounty of fall veggies and fruits, beautiful baking and honey and flowers, crafts, music and a garden of community.
HERITAGE FIBRE MILL is there with their popular hemp, linen and wool fibres, INVINITY SPARKLING WINE is back with the perfect wine to complement your Thanksgiving dinner, SARAH’S STAPLES will be there with sweet and savoury preserves to see you through the winter, REGROWTH FOOD AND FIBRE will have their hugely popular mushrooms, and our regular growers and crafters will be there with a huge variety of goods – it’s harvest season!
As we’ve come to rely on, WATER IN THE CRAWL SPACE will close out the season with music to dance to, listen to, and sing along with.
See you on Saturday!
