We welcomed Dee McCauley to the market this week. Dee has been baking up a storm and the smells of fresh baking has permeated her home as she prepared her creative Gingerbread cookies for our market.
Dee was delighted with the response by market visitors last Saturday for her hand decorated cookies. By mid morning when I turned to look at Dee’s table, she had only 3 cookies left in a box and I was ecstatic to learn that she had sold out before 11am.
Make an effort to get to the Market early this Saturday; you don’t want to miss out on Dee’s Cookies.
We would also like to welcome Marty Bateman from Orchid Bridal and Gifts to the Market. She has a growing business selling silk floral arrangements for weddings and special events. They have many seasonal gift ideas for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Make sure you drop by Orchid Bridal and Gifts and speak to Marty about her beautiful creations.
We have a special treat for kids this week at the Kerr Village Farmer’s Market. It’s Cathy Nesbitt from “Cathy’s Crawly Composters” she is going to teach local Kerr Village kids all about worms!
They will discover worm poo, worm bins, worm paraphernalia and books on worms. This “Squirmin” event will help young kids become farmers……with a different kind of crop – their crop would be – oh no! Poo!
The Red Wigglers will be on hand to show and tell. Each of the children and their parents can watch a film called “Squirm” – but instead of popcorn being served everyone will be treated to “dirt cupcakes complete with worm topping”.
This may be the last weekend of the farmers market but it’s not the end of the fun in Kerr Village. Make plans to attend these upcoming events on Kerr St.
