As another spring slowly rolls around, preparations have
started at Collingwood's Downtown Farmers' Market. Vendors are busy
planting, growing, making and baking in anticipation of the May 16th kickoff to
the 11th anniversary season.
To start the season the Collingwood Garden Club will be hosting an interactive centre at the market from opening day until June 6. The Centre will feature planting activities for kids and adults, Master Gardeners, information about gardening, area gardens, membership, demonstrations and a special draw every week for great gardening stuff!
Continuing this year is the program of VQA wine sales at the local market. Returning vendors, Georgian Hills Vineyards and Coffin Ridge Winery will again have their products for sale - including allowing you to sample the offerings before you buy.
2015 also marks the third year for the Moonlight Market, with the promise of a bigger (and brighter!) atmosphere. Watch for details about this exciting annual event!
Plan to come out to the municipal parking lot on the corner of Second and Pine Streets on May 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to celebrate the start to the market's 11th anniversary year. Take a bite out of summer with the Collingwood Downtown Farmers' Market!
