Last chance for ‘lo­ca­vores’

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The Stanstead Farmer’s Mar­ket will be hold­ing its last sale of the sea­son this Sun­day, from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm, on the beau­ti­ful grounds of Stanstead Col­lege. Be­sides the of­fer­ings of lo­cal farm­ers, bak­ers and ar­ti­sans, the or­ga­niz­ers will be sell­ing ‘half and half’ tick­ets to raise money for the CAB RH Rediker as well

as giv­ing away some nice prizes to lucky ticket hold­ers. Live mu­sic is of­ten a part of this weekly event and, this Sun­day, Olivier Adoue might be play­ing his fid­dle, weather and time per­mit­ting.

Some of the fresh pro­duce that will be avail­able this Sun­day in­clude ap­ples, to­ma­toes, pep­pers, car­rots, pota­toes, onions, pos­si­bly some of the last fresh beans, squash and pump­kins, pump­kins, pump­kins! Also avail­able are honey prod­ucts, smoked fish, a wide va­ri­ety of baked goods like pies, cup­cakes and brown­ies, jew­ellery, stained glass and more.

Or­ga­nizer Bev­erly Good­sell did a lit­tle sur­vey at the mar­ket over the sum­mer to see who was shop­ping there, with sur­pris­ing re­sults. “I spoke with some peo­ple from the Cote d’Azur who were do­ing a tour of Quebec. Ac­tu­ally, most of the peo­ple who come to the mar­ket are from out­side. We don’t see many town peo­ple at the mar­ket,” she ex­plained.

“We’d like to thank Stanstead Col­lege for al­low­ing us the use of their beau­ti­ful cam­pus for the third year in a row; we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it, and we thank all the mu­si­cians who have en­ter­tained our shop­pers,” said Mrs. Good­sell.

Other Farm­ers’ Mar­kets in the re­gion, at North Hat­ley, Ayer’s Cliff and Ge­orgeville, will be open this Satur­day morn­ing.
