Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

The Stanstead Farmer’s Mar­ket will be open­ing for the sea­son this Sun­day, June 23rd, and af­ter “three won­der­ful years on the beau­ti­ful grounds of Stanstead Col­lege”, or­ga­niz­ers Bev­erly Good­sell and Eva Juul re­cently an­nounced that the mar­ket would be mov­ing to the grounds of the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum. “We are so grate­ful to Stanstead Col­lege, es­pe­cially Head­mas­ter Michael Wolfe, and we thank him for his gen­eros­ity. We be­gan in a park­ing lot so we were very for­tu­nate that he opened up the grounds of the Col­lege for us,” com­mented Farmer’s Mar­ket or­ga­niz­ers Bev­erly Good­sell and Eva Juul.

“This year we de­cided to go to the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum be­cause we need to have elec­tric­ity and we needed a tiled sur­face for pre­pared food be­cause we want to aim for the high­est hy­gienic stan­dards,” ex­plained Ms. Juul. “We also wanted to help pro­mote the mu­seum and be more vis­i­ble in the com­mu­nity,” said Ms. Good­sell. “We’re very ex­cited and very happy that the Farmer’s Mar­ket is com­ing to the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum,” com­mented Harry Is­brucker, the Mu­seum’s in­terim di­rec­tor.

Apart from the change in lo­ca­tion, the mar­ket will con­tinue to take place on Sun­day morn­ings, from 10:00 am to noon, ex­cept for on the week­end of the Border­Fest, July 6th, when the mar­ket will be held on Satur­day at the same time as the Colby-Cur­tis’ Taste of the Re­gion event.

Some of the Stanstead Farmer’s Mar­ket’s lo­cally-pro­duced prod­ucts that will be on sale in­clude bak­ery goods, bi­son prod­ucts, honey prod­ucts, smoked salmon and trout, home-made samosas and veg­eta­bles and fruits as they come into sea­son. One ven­dor will have a prod­uct that orig­i­nates far from home but will be ap­pre­ci­ated none­the­less: olive oil from Spain, Italy and Crete. “We’re hop­ing to have straw­ber­ries for the open­ing Sun­day.” There are also ar­ti­sanal prod­ucts avail­able such as jewelry, stained glass, pot­tery and more.
