Thank goodness for the cooler weather. But we are thankful for the great bounty of produce the extreme heat brought on. The Codrington Farmers’ Market is featuring harvest specialties, along with late summer prime products. There are many items to choose from when preparing school or work lunches. Who doesn’t like apples, raw veggies cut up, and granola bars?
The days are getting noticeably shorter (already?), so many of us are thinking about soups and stews. There is garlic galore from Rainbow Terrace, and you can find great choices of meats, sausage, and veggies (including delightful mushrooms) for your creative endeavours. Not feeling creative? Pick up ready-made frozen products from Margo or The Bakery. As always, our local hard-working vendors look forward to chatting with you and talking about their farming methods and products.
Be sure to treat yourself or someone you love with fresh flowers. You will be longing for them in the middle of January. Michael has gorgeous Glads, and Melanie has a huge variety of colourful blooms. She is also featured in today’s Toronto Star article on local flower entrepreneurs. Please see our Facebook page for a link to this story.
You can also facilitate your grocery shopping by picking up eggs, sausage, and Empire Cheese – along with amazing freshly harvested corn – from Glover’s.
Our once-a-month vendor is Dotty, with her gourmet sauce. Try her meatball samples and you’ll be sold!
One of our favourite musical duos will be entertaining this Sunday: Billy and Lynn. You can just see their joy in performing. Bring your instrument along and join them.
We have invited Friends of the Library (Brighton) to join us this Sunday to sell tickets for their basket of goodies. They are fundraising to purchase chattels for the newly renovated (almost) library. The construction expenses are covered by a grant, but other parties need to come up with money for things like shelving, carts, etc.
There is much more waiting for you this Sunday from 10 until 2. Thank you very much for supporting local vendors (everywhere). Remember: the money they receive will be spent in our local communities!
