Fresh From The Market

Withrow Park Farmers’ Market – Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Greetings Friends,

You have two more Saturdays to enjoy the Withrow Park Farmers’ Market! Our final two markets of the season are Saturday, Oct. 18 and Saturday, Oct. 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Market goers can expect to find most of their favourite vendors selling farm fresh vegetables, meat, dairy and eggs, as well as a variety of local crafts, baked goods, and healthy prepared foods.

Come by this Saturday, bring the family, and stock up on some fresh produce and old favourites. We’ll have the coffee on early.

See you this Saturday!

Locally yours,

John Zeus, market manager | email: withrowmarket@gmail.com
