Really? This is the last weekend in August? Holy Moley! School lunches will be popping onto the agenda in the near future. And, you’re in luck. The Codrington Farmers’ Market solves problems. Local apples and raw veggiesare great lunch additions, along with homemade granola bars (see Amanda at Rainbow Terrace), muffins and cheese (Glover’s have many varieties), plus stuffed buns and many treats to be found at The Bakery. Michael has grown lovely melons this year. Cut them up and send to school in a little plastic container.
You can also pick up new-crop honey and maple syrup – both are delicious in tea and coffee. Amanda also has a great crop of garlic. She can describe the different varieties she grew so that you choose the one that suits your taste buds.
If you are in the mood to cook there are many choices of frozen meats to use in combination with the abundance of fresh produce. If cooking can wait, be sure to take home some ready-made frozen meals lovingly prepared by Margo (Kingsholm Farms) and Jessica and Jay (The Bakery).
Since this will be the last Sunday of the month, the Artisans will be there – inside and outside the hall. There is no charge for this exhibition, and they create their own products. You could get an early start on Christmas shopping!
Annie is also joining us with her amazing wood-fired bread (many varieties this week). In case you didn’t know, she is up and feeding the oven at 1:00 a.m. so everything will be super-fresh for you at 10:00.
Live music will be happening as usual. This Sunday features one of our favourite local duos: R&R. Come on out and tap your feet to the great sounds of Ray and Ralph, while indulging yourself in some relaxation and rejuvenation.
There are many in-hand snacks available to enjoy with your free coffee. Time: 10:00 until 2:00. The Library Branch is also open during these hours.
