Come on out to the Codrington Farmers’ Market on Sunday. It’s really the last time this year, and it is a Christmas-themed Market. In case you are wondering, it is being held inside the hall and the hours are the same: 10 - 2.
This is the perfect time and place to get local handcrafted gifts and decorations (lots of greenery), and a last chance to stock up on garlic, potatoes, frozen dinners (Shepherd’s pie, Chicken and Beef Pot Pie, Tourtiere, sausage lasagna), soups and dips, honey, maple syrup, Empire Cider, jams, soaps, salves, balms, meat, sausage, and baked goods. Annie has been coaxed to return one more time with her wood-fired breads, so she will be up again at 2:00 a.m. putting loaves in the outdoor oven and cursing the weather. Her selections this week include: Honey Spelt (great for gluten-sensitive folks), Greek Kalamata Olive, Mixed Olives & Rosemary, Cinnamon Raisin, Cranberry & Walnut, Caraway & Onion Rye, Tomato & Herbs, Rustic White, and a few loaves of her newest creation, Roasted Garlic & Rosemary. Meanwhile, the Warkworth Bakery will feature great breads, special sweet treats, peameal on a bun, savoury specialties, and more. Faith will round out the baked goods with pies, date squares, cookies, Christmas packages of jams and jellies, donuts, and other surprises.
If there’s a Grey Cup for local farmers’ markets on Sunday, there is no contest. Put your money on Codrington. Hope to see you there.
