Sitting under my tent at the Constance Bay Community Market I couldn’t help but feel I was in the right place at the right time again, making connections The weather was overcast and overall attendance to the market was down. Even so, I was happy to be connecting with individuals at a community event. The organizer, Cindy does a great job of putting everything together. One passerby recognized me from last year, commenting that she’d love to buy some more syrup but still had some from last year at home. The next events I’m attending are the Kinburn and Arnprior Christmas Markets. I know I’ll recognize plenty of faces at the Kinburn market, though this is my first year going to the Arnprior market; I must say I’m excited at the this expansion and increase in exposure.
I just did our first farmers market on our Island this past summer and early fall. It was great making a little extra money but meeting and connecting with the people was by far the best part of the market. Now the weather is changing here so we are done for the season and I am already looking forward to next season! Tina
Glad to hear you enjoyed it. As a vendor I felt it really did bring out a sense of community. I eagerly anticipate expanding my product line to include honey next year. I think our community will really enjoy it. I am continually surprised at how different and so much more flavorful the honey I harvested tasted from store-bought honey. Cheers! Julia
I am doing a couple of Christmas markets this year and am branching out a little, beyond the 2 different markets from last year, to include an Arnprior market and a Barrhaven market, both of which will have much greater attendance and hopefully more syrup sales for me!
