Horton Farmers Market Newsletter September 22nd 2012

When the cat is away, will the mice play? For the first time ever since taking on the Market Manager position I will not be there this Saturday. My personal business is hosting a 4-day extensive conference in London and because I haven’t learned how to split the atom – or clone myself – I can’t be in two places at once. Also, it would seem that the wireless at the Hotel prevents me from uploading photos or properly use the newsletter software. My apologies for the plain text message, but please see some great photos from our vendors on our Facebook page.
Outside of technology bumps, never fear, I am sure all will run smoothly in my absence. Remember in your childhood when you stayed home sick from school it was hard to imagine school was going on with out you there? That is sort of how I feel about missing the market. Fortunately, I will be sending a family member to purchase my weekly goods – therefore I will have proof that in fact the show went on without me.
See you all next week!

Shuug and The Temporary Men ARE PLAYING THE MARKET! October 6th is the re-scheduled date after the rain-out!

Some highlights this weekend!

QUAI DE VIN: Joins the market this weekend with their delicious fresh pressed juices. Last year they sold out within an hour their first week, so come early!

GRAMMIES CREATIONS: Grammies Creations has been at it again.  New this week is Pickled Cauliflower, Pumpkin Chutney just in time for Thanksgiving and the world famous..or should it be St. Thomas famous Cranberry Chutney that sells out each time it’s at the market.  It’s not to early to order for Christmas Basket while your favourite pickles are available.
