Good news from Howson’s Pure Maple Syrup and Honey this week. The first honey harvest of 2018 is underway! Check out Howson’s Facebook Page for photos and video of the capping wax being taken off the frames and the honey dripping out of the extractor. It looks so good! My sons like honey drizzled on their cereal in the morning and I’ve learned not to buy any honey but Howson’s. My boys won’t eat it. They’re spoiled on the good stuff! If you’ve never given Howson’s honey products a try, be sure to stop by and see Wayne (or his son Will) on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Wayne often has beeswax and beeswax candles for sale as well as their delicious maple syrup of course!
Wednesday this week:
All the usual goodies at market on Wednesday – beef, lamb, soap, honey, maple syrup, homemade sushi and pastries. Our produce vendors have beans, cucumbers, zucchini, garlic and new potatoes coming on strong.
Saturday this week:
Our farm vendors are joined by three fantastic local artisans:
Chandra Rice is back with her fabulous pottery, textiles, hand bound books and more! Did you know that Chandra offers creative retreats with BeetleBarrow Studios at The Cedars near Campbellford? For more information about how to join her for a weekend away, visit BeetleBarrow’s website.
Ken Dummit and his sister Annita, are bringing Ken’s hand carved fish and ducks for sale. Ken’s Rush Point Carving has been featured on the cover of Lee Valley catalogues! Quite an honour!
Davis Woodworks will be here too. Alec Davis’ woodworking is always a hit. His cutting boards, bowls, rolling pins and more, are works of art that make wonderful wedding or house warming gifts.
