Royal City Farmers Market
This week marks the halfway point of our summer season! Have you taken advantage of all the amazing products available to you yet? We still have an abundance of berries (blueberry, blackberry & raspberries) as well as cherries and now apples! If you are looking for something more savoury corn made it’s first appearance at the market last week and will be returning again this Thursday.
Fun things happening at our market:
- Our GET CHOPPED! game continues, visit our inspiration station to play along.
- Our second Kids Market Place happens this week, need to purchase some home made play dough? We’ve got it!
- Sign up for our Third Annual Pie Bake Off next week!
We have two new vendors this week, Spider Scare and The Raw Guy. If you are looking to get rid of those pesky wolf spiders in your house Spider Scare has an all natural spider repellent for you to use. Brian, The Raw Guy, has a variety of delicious products for you to enjoy including very tasty kale chips.
Our friends from The Music Box are returning to run our kids activity station. We’ll also have Allison Grant available for face painting fun!
The Music Stage will be featuring a returning favorite this week Dave Paterson.
Make sure you join us for dinner this Thursday our food trucks are Old Country Pierogi and Garbanzos.
