Kevin FlynnThe Kerr Village BIA and the Farmers Market had a special guest on September 11th. Kevin Flynn the Member of Provincial Parliament for Oakville paid us a visit at the market. The purpose of his visit was to present the Kerr Village BIA and The Farmers Market with a Grant from Agriculture Canada and the Ontario Market Fund OMAFRA. The purpose of the grant is to promote the use of locally produce fruits, vegetables, and Meats from growers and producers from within 100 miles of Kerr Village. Kevin Flynn pointed out that restaurants like Cora’s Breakfast are a great example of a company that supports buying locally. Much of their fruit is purchased from local growers and producers and we know they use a lot of fruit in the breakfast dishes they prepare. You can watch the full video of Kevin’s presentation by visiting our Facebook Page.
Sept 11th was a very busy day. The market was well represented by farmers from both our Co-Op tents to lcoal vendors and producers. We had special guests as well such as Oakville United Taxi
who were celebrating their 10th anniversary in Oakville, The Town of Oakville talking about sustainability ideas for residents and Goodlife fitness sharing ideas on staying fit and eating healthy. Overall it was a very exciting day at the market with Kevin Flynn’s presentation, the vendors and the farmers. We are looking forward to the remaining Saturday’s of the market including our next big event which is taking place on Saturday September 25th and will include a visit to the Market by the Wine Laddies , Tag Vodka , and Liaison College.
