BASKET DRAW of farmers' market goodies!  To be eligible just spend $20 or more at market and you can enter.  Here's how it works....

The vendor will offer the entry slip to eligible customers. Next, clearly write your email address on the back and place it in the box at the organizers tent. If the vendor has over looked a slip for you, because they do get busy, come on over to the organizers tent and for one and/or if your spending is shared over a few vendors, not to worry, Carolyn or Ally will 'eyeball' your market shop to verify.

The draw will happen on the last Tuesday of month. Remaining draw dates Sept 27 and Oct. 25, 2016. Baskets will be pre-filled with market goodies by management and must be accepted as presented. By entering the 'basket draw' contest, the winner(s) agrees to pre-arranged pick up of winning basket by the two following market days of monthly draw date. VQA wine is excluded.

Thank you! Now you've got some shopping incentive....if you needed any. OH and you get a super cute basket to boot! Easy peasy to strap onto your bike too.

WALKING YOUR BIKE THROUGH THE MARKET - PARKING YOUR BIKE SHOPPING AT THE MARKET

We know it's uber convenient to bring you bike with you right up to the stall.  But it's not always the safest approach - seen many a bike topple over in crowded stall area, there's lots of small people around and we don't want anyone to get hurt from shopping at a farmers market - yikes.  Simple solution, just lock up your wheels, lay it down on the grass or with the kick stand or LEAN it agains a mature tree.  You bike will be fine. Thank you!

LEAVE A BAG / TAKE A BAG PROGRAM starts this season.

To further our commitment to our environment, we will be implementing 'leave a bag/take a bag' for FREE.  Which means, any extra clean re-useable shopping bags (paper handled ones are good too!)  that you have at home (we know you have some) bring them to market for others to use.  If you forget your bag one time, help yourself to a bag.  Return it, keep using it.  No worries.

Please only donate CLEAN bags, especially free of pet hairs re: people with allergens.  Thank you.
