Spring Beginnings

February already!  We can hardly believe that the beginning of the market season is in 2 short months.  We are busy planning and getting things ready for May when the market opens.

I know many of our vegetable growers are busy planting seeds in their seed rooms to try and get out to the market as early as they can!!  Our bakers and researching and tweaking new recipes.  I heard through the grapevine that Beth from Beth’s Kitchens has some exciting flavours coming up this season.  I know I can’t wait to get a taste of some of Agnes’ tarts and oh the veggies from Teske Spin Farm, Lavallee Gardens or Mr. Huyer’s Produce and fresh local fruits from McGregor’s Produce and Mr Gagan’s Apples!!  Maybe this year will be better and there will be an abundance of corn, I know we only got a couple dozen before it ended!  We can’t forget Shanna, Tyler and baby Jack and their delicious lamb or Mr. Bouchard and his honey.  Have I made your mouth water yet???

I am told things are coming together and we are always looking for new vendors that make/produce great locally made products.  So please contact us if you are interested in attending our market!

Market Moving June 2

Well it’s almost here.  The day we try out our new home for the season.  The Renfrew Farmer’s Market will be at the Renfrew Fair Grounds starting Saturday June 2, 2012 till Thanksgiving weekend.  Our hours are not changing, so you can expect us there from 7am till 12pm.

We are very excited and are finalizing and tweaking thin, making sure we have signs in place so that all our customers won’t miss us!   There will be signs down at our old location letting those who haven’t heard that we have moved.  So please help us spread the word to family and friends that are planning to come to the Farmers’ Market on Saturday that it is now at the Fairgrounds.  There will be baking, crafts, flowers and even the veggies are starting to show!  We have some new bakers with different types of breads, french bread, artisan breads, cookies, and all sorts of yummy treats! So come on down to our new location this Saturday morning!!
