Fresh Fest is tonight! Horton Farmers Market
will be there with three fresh local inspired beverages. 100 pounds of fruit were peeled and juiced fresh! We’ll have Peach Lemonade (made with Troup Farms peaches), Lavender Lemonade (local lavender from Steed & Company) and Minty Melonade (Melons from R-Grow and Mint from McSmiths). The sweetest part is that all of these drinks will be flavoured and pucker-free thanks to delicious honey from Clovermead. We hope to see you there! If there are left-overs, you may see them for sale Saturday at the market.
PS – Just want to mention – our awesome facepainter Isabelle from Fabtastic will be absent from the market this weekend.
Check out some of these highlights from this weekends market:
St. Thomas Public Library: St. Thomas Public Library – We’re celebrating kids of all ages! Be sure to stop by the library’s space with the little ones this Saturday. We’re bringing lots of activities and games from the new “Kid’s Spot” in the Children’s & Teens’ Department of the library. Learning really can be fun! These games are specially chosen to help your child build literacy skills, but the kids will be having so much fun, they probably won’t even notice they’re learning. Also, the Friends of St. Thomas Public Library are bringing lots of books for children, ‘tweens, and young adults. Make some time to browse the book shelves so the learning can continue at home! Don’t forget – you can sign up for a free library card at the market, or upgrade your old, green library card to a new card and key fob for free!
Green Leaf Gourmet: is happy to be “back” after a very tediously slow back injury recovery. Kim will have some delicious new Seasonal Preserves, Dips and Salads available this weekend. Please stop by her table for a sample of these awesome sweet and savoury treats. There will also be a beautiful variety of French Tarts and Sweet Breads, lovely Squares & Scones and some delectable vegan and gluten~free choices, including a exceptional Energy Bar. All gourmet items are produced using local, organic ingredients and natural sweeteners. Second to none for quality, local, wholesome gourmet choices ~ a perfect way to start your day! See you on Saturday.
