Spring Market Fun

Carp Farmers’ Easter Market

It was said of the United States Postal Service that; “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”.

The same can be said of the Carp Farmers Market. While the odd snowflake may still be around , spring is officially here so why not come and  taste a little of the spring magic conjured up by the  Carp Farmers at their Annual Easter Market on  Saturday April 19th, 2014.

Gates open at 8.00 a.m. and stay that way until 2.00 p.m. Fifty-plus vendors will be on hand with a wide selection of premium products designed to give your  holiday meals that special local touch.

Assorted meats (local lamb, elk, pork, and beef), eggs,  fresh micro greens, and lettuce, stored root vegetables,   herbs, garlic dips and delights, maple syrup, cranberries, fresh cider and juicy apples from last year’s crop, plus a wide range of preserves and cheeses, savoury and sweet baked goods are among some of the many products on offer along with Easter’s special candy favourite – chocolate.

Hunting for that special Easter gift? Carp Farmers’ Market has something for that someone who has everything!  Check out the high-end crafts:  from cards and art, through ceramics, quilts, woodwork and jewellery  to toys and clothing.

The food court will be in full swing to keep your energies high with homemade drinks, both hot and cold, snacks and more substantial plates.

Although Market President David McCreery laments the unusually long and hard winter he’s also the first to point out that “although we may be a little behind with some of our spring produce, we still have a great selection from which to choose.

 “The Carp Farmers’ Market is growing bigger year by year but our commitment to maintaining the highest possible quality in both produce and crafts remains as strong as ever.

“Times are still tough for many families  so the Market will be running a 50/50 draw in support of the West Carleton Food Bank as well as accepting any donations of non-perishable food items. And, in keeping with our Easter Market tradition there’ll be a draw for the market’s decorated Easter basket.

 “So forget the weather. Take a break and catch a touch of the Market’s  special brand of spring fever. There’s a warm welcome waiting for old friends and new, rain or shine.”
