The Codrington Farmers’ Market is still going strong on Sundays from 10-2. The vendors will welcome you through October 29, and then again inside on November 19 and 26. There are still many choices for you, including harvest vegetables, sausage, beef, pork, chicken, bison, eggs, cheese, teas, tinctures, amazing baked goods, jams, flowers, maple syrup, honey, apples, and more.
Here’s a delicious message from Annie from My World Kitchen:
For the first time at the Market, I will have my naturally leavened Apple Cider Rye bread, featuring the delicious hard apple cider from Empire Cider, available at the Market. Againthis Sunday, I will have my new Mixed Olives & Rosemary bread. In addition to my usual regular-sized Kalamata Olive loaves, I will also have a few larger loaves. You'll be able to get the ever-popular Cinnamon Raisin, sweetened with honey, the NY-Style Rye with caraway seeds, as well as the Caraway & Onion Rye bread. I will also bake a few loaves of the delicious Tomato & Herbs featuring tasty Italian sun dried tomatoes as well as the naturally-leavened Honey Spelt, the favourite for gluten-sensitive folks, and it's sweetened with the aromatic wildflower honey from Honey For You Farm (also available at the Market).
Enjoy free coffee while tapping your feet to the live music. Chat with the friendly vendors. Ask them about their products and farm operation.
Please make a note: On the following Sunday, the 22nd, there will be a Health & Wellness Fair inside the hall during market hours (10-2). You can talk to exhibitors from Healthy Heart, GAIN, Alzheimer’s Society, Cancer Society, and many more. Get your blood pressure checked, and help yourself to an apple. It’s all free.

The Vendors at the Codrington Farmers’ Market have much to be thankful for and we hope you do too. Just appreciating that we live in this wonderful country is a good place to start.
We hope you will spend part of your Thanksgiving Sunday at the Market (10 – 2). You can pick up what you need for a meal later in the day – or you can pick up a meal and save yourself a lot of work. Margo at Kingsholm Farms has delicious frozen entrees, and on Sunday Kevin is joining her (hooray) to barbecue Maple Breakfast Sausage featuring their pork & Cranbook Farm’s maple syrup. Of course they will be serving fries and fritters too.
The Bakery (Warkworth) also brings frozen meals and will be barbecuing their thick, juicy peameal bacon on a bun. They will also have a yummy assortment of pies and other desserts. Find them this Sunday at the small shelter. There are more tasty treats at Faith’s, and Glover’s stalls too.
Right across from Glover’s is Empire Cider. If you are looking for a beverage for a Thanksgiving Toast, this is a good local one. Warm up with tea from Hawley Farm, or Chaga beverage from Don while enjoying live music.
If you don’t have your winter supply of garlic, now is the time. Check out the selections at Rainbow Terrace Farms stall. You will never eat Chinese garlic again. Stock up on harvest veggies from the following farms: Jeff at Grimson’s, Jen at Glover’s, Eric at Eva Mae’s, and Andrew at Vokes’. Be sure to chat with Michael about apple choices. This is peak season.
This weekend is a very special time for Melanie’s flowers. You won’t believe her arrangements; you will want one for your table, or as a gift if you are lucky enough to be invited for a meal elsewhere. Another good gift idea is hand-made soaps and lotions – available from Amanda at Rainbow Terrace and Nancy at Northumberland Soap.
Last, but not least by far, Dorothy is making Pumpkin Soup using fresh pie pumpkins. She will show you how to process and use them. Samples will be offered, as always.
Please remember that the Market will operate outside throughout October, and then there will be two more times inside: November 19 and 26.
Also, there will be a Health Fair inside during market hours on Oct. 22, and then the final Artisan Markethappens on Oct. 29. No charge for either.
