The next market is Sat. July 4th.  

Fickle Fig's honey sold out last week, but we're hoping for more!  We'll keep you posted on fruit at the market (is it possible that strawberries are over already?!), but we're sure to have blueberries from Oakwind and raspberries and tayberries from Sol Farm. Echo Valley has black currents and Bernadette has marionberries, so there will be lots to choose from! Bright and beautiful flowers are plentiful at the market now, and Bernadette, Al from Ardmore Gardens and Ashley from Deep Cove Canning have the most spectacular bouquets.  As well, Captain Pete will be back with salmon, prawns and maybe some halibut, Fickle Fig has chicken and pork, and we hope to have Country Wools' lamb products.  And then there's the produce: too much to list here, but suffice to say... there's lots and it's the best!  (The list of what all our vendors are bringing is under "read more" below.)  Which treats to buy from our bakers will be, as always, the hardest choice to make, and the crafts are delightful.  Our musician this week is JENNIFER LOUISE TAYLOR, who's performed many times at the market and is always a popular draw.
