Collingwood Farmer’s Market

I ran into one of my fav real estate clients at the Collingwood Farmer’s Market this past week-end.  I I asked her why she had a booth for her business there and she said, “I like the vibe here.”  In my view, that pretty much sums things up.

It’s a small market but offers everything you’d expect ~ from local produce and hormone-free meats to lotions, flowers and hand crafted items. My purchases this week-end included home-made chicken perogies, hand-formed pork sausages with dried cranberries and pistachios, organic mixed lettuce and honey-cream corn.  I also finally picked up a one-of-a-kind, beautiful pottery travel mug I’ve been coveting.

Wandering around, you run into friends, acquantainces and cheerful, chatty vendors.  Giant sunflowers dot the booths and the smell of lavendar and Ashanti coffee hang in the air.  Yeah, I like the vibe too.

The Collingwood Farmer’s Market operates from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Saturday from Victoria Day through to the labour Day week-end.  For the next four weeks or so, I’ll be down there for at least two hours a day staffing the Wordstock  booth.  Come on down and say hi!
