What better way to welcome a return to warm breezes, sunny days, and all that early summer has to offer than a visit to a local Farmers’ Market? While it may be a little early for a good selection of fresh produce, most markets offer so much more than just fruit and veggies! From locally produced baked goods, small-batch jams & preserves, maple syrup, meat products, plants, and a variety of hand-crafted wares on offer, you’re sure to find something you simply ‘must have’. If nothing else, it’s a good excuse to get out in the sunshine and explore our region!
