Peterborough Farmers Market – Saturdays 7 – 1 pm September 4, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tracy @ 11:48 am

I get asked this question every time I’m at the market – so here it is in black and white …

YES – our market goes year round – from May 1st until October 31st we are outside – to accomodate all of the amazing farm produce grown right here in ontario – picked just hours before it’s for sale… we have everything from a variety of meats to every kind of fruit and veggie… spices, herbs, sweet and savoury – and it’s extended to the breads, sweets and pastries … cheese? got it… flowers? got it… amazing local musicians… check –

Sadly not everyone can cram into the building at the beginning of November – but we will be – as always… available year round at our booth between Floyyd the cheese man and Shish Kabob Hut and Taste of Russia. 

The building is heated – and much much warmer now that we have a new roof.  Many of our local foods are available until Christmas – meats of course are available year round – eggs – poultry –

Of course there are many artistic people at the market too – woodcrafts, candles, salves, jewellery,

yummy foods like popcorn, and candy floss –

literally something for everyone… free admission and free parking – bet you’ll be surprised if you’ve never been – or haven’t been in a while – and I’d bet you’ll run into old friends and neighbours too –

I just love the market… have you been lately?

Orono Fall Fair is on September 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th

We will be setting up for the 159th Orono Fair on September 8th 2011.  Of course we will bring hot coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate and hot local apple cider… and cold frosty iced coffees – We hear this fair is awesome – friendly people – and a great time by everyone young and old… I picked up this article from their website and wanted to share!

” LOCAL AGRICULTURE: IT’S EVERYONE’S BUSINESS”

Orono Fair is one of the oldest running fairs in Ontario and is one of the largest tourist events in Durham Region. Since its inception in 1851, people have been drawn to the various exhibits, entertainment and competitive events.
After being held for many years in Newcastle, the fair moved to its present location in 1895. The Orono Fair is the result of an amalgamation of the West Durham Agricultural and the Clark Agricultural Societies in 1932. As a result of this union, the Durham Central Agricultural Society was established. On January 19th 2011 the society name changed once again and is now known as Orono Agricultural Society.

We are an Agricultural Fall Fair that runs the first weekend after Labour Day in September. Our fair has been hosted by the agricultural society since 1852.
The fair annually features exquisite displays and competitions involving paintings, photographs, agriculture (fruits, vegetables and crops), livestock (sheep, cattle, poultry and rabbits), flowers, knitting, woodworking, sewing, crafts, school displays, culinary creations and many other artistic works. As well as one of the largest midways throughout the area.

 
 
 

Our 2011 Features

“Often cited as a musical poet of small-town America… Eaglesmith has carved out an enviable cult niche,” observes the  Minneapolis Star Tribune. He has built that following over the last three decades of his truly independent and alternative career by  playing marvelous live shows the better part of  every  year and releasing superb albums. But now with Tinderbox, Eaglesmith is  ascending to the next level, packing most every venue he visits and  being hailed  as a “genius” (Arizona Daily Star) for not just his  “devastatingly good” songwriting (Philadelphia Inquirer) but all that he does with it.

 
“His original tunes can sound like long-lost traditional songs with a modern edge,” notes the Atlanta Journal Constitution. As the  Nashville Scene  observes, “His voice is varnished with whiskey, the raw scratch as primordial as his earthy tales of desperate, often  farm-bound folk… winding tense t  tales  around bustling Bakersfield-tinged roots rock and bluegrass.”  While the Spartanburg  Herald-Journal praises, “A gifted singer-songwriter who  paints vivid  musical pictures filled with the kind of blue-collar heroes  found in the works of James McMurtry, Guy Clark and Jerry Jeff Walker.”
