On the 2nd Sunday in June, Farmers’ Markets across Ontario come alive with early-season produce, and renewed anticipation of the harvest season to come….and FREE CAKE!
We have 5 runner-up prize packages this year donated by our amazing community sponsors. Receive one ballot per $10 spent at a single vendor.
GUESS THAT SEEDLING:
Our favourite Local Food Week game got an update this year with new seedlings and new challenges fit for all ages! This is the “no purchase required” method to earn prize ballots. One prize ballot per game (if you team up, you get 1 ballot to share). Extra ballots can be won by getting a perfect score on the two bonus challenges!
NEW! TAKE A BAG, LEAVE A BAG:
We are looking to inherit your stash of plastic and reusable bags as part of our new Waste Reduction strategy! Pop by the info tent if you forgot your bags and/or drop off your extras to create a shared community bag supply! We hope you love this new idea as much as we do!
NEW CANVAS BAGS:
There are three ways to score one of our limited edition canvas market bags….
– Be one of the first 100 visitors to the Art Barn
– Have one lovingly bestowed to you by your favourite vendor
– For a donation of $15 or more
We’ll have special fabric markers at the Art Barn to colour yours in!
LOCAL FOOD WEEK CAKE:
Starting at 11am pop by the info tent for a free slice of our Local Food Week Cake baked lovingly by Bread and Butter Bakery.
TURTLES AND SNAKES?!
Friends of Kingston Inner Harbour will be at our featured Community Table this week. Learn about citizen science and find out how humans of all ages can help protect local turtles and wetlands!
Kitchen Gypsies! 10am-1pm
