The manic month of June is upon us! The days are long and garden work is at it’s peak. Those weeds really do seem to pop up out of nowhere! If you’ve got children in your life, they are likely wrapping up academics, taking part in end of school year trips, and starting their summer sports activities. Busy days!
Sunday is Father’s Day, and for all the men out there who work so hard to keep family life running smoothly (which is a challenge this month!), we hope it’s a day of rest and celebration. If you’re looking for ways to make the day special for Dad, we’ll have three artisans at Saturday’s market this week: Chandra Rice, Lone Elm, and Art de Claude. They all have great gift ideas.
Or why not buy a special cut of meat for the barbeque from Russett Farms, Healey Falls Bison Farms or Braelea Acres as a treat? Maybe something for Dad’s sweet tooth like a delicious “made from scratch” pie from A2 Baking Creations would fit the bill? Or, if Dad is a gardener, Rainbow Terrace still has an amazing selection of plants for his vegetable or flower gardens.
Also on Saturday, we’re welcoming representatives from Northumberland County to our community stall. They are working on a branding project and are looking for feedback from the public about what makes our community unique. If you stop by their table and share your thoughts by taking a two-minute survey, you could win one of five Bluetooth speakers!
If you’re a music fan you’ll enjoy listening to Nicole Craig perform on Saturday. Check out her bio by clicking on her name. She has an impressive resume!
And finally, we were happy to get a shout out on Facebook this week from the Campbellford Branch of the Trent Hills Public Library. Every year we set aside some money to donate back into the community. This year we decided to foot the bill for the library to add to their collection of books about local food and farming. It looks like they made some terrific choices! We love their photo of the table of books and kind note that they have on display in the library.
We hope you have time to make us part of your week. Thanks for reading!
