Farmers’ Market Back For Another Season

Stephen Vance, Staff

Overcast skies bringing the threat of rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of vendors setting up for the first Meaford Farmers’ Market of the season at the Rotary Harbour Pavilion on Friday, June 1.

After a long winter, vendors were eager to set up their tables and say hello to market patrons for their 12th season.

Returning this year is popular market chef Erin Shepherd, who prepares dishes each week featuring food products supplied by market vendors.

There will also be lots of arts and crafts such as paintings, cards, hand-turned pens, various wood products, and handmade stoneware.

Those looking for something to eat while at the market have a number of options this year with a number of prepared food vendors participating, including Sail Restaurant & Catering Co., Sheayer’s Catering with their Syrian cuisine, Koreann’s Kitchen with Korean cuisine, and Mojo’s Feel-Good Food with their Indian cuisine.
