Fall

The crisp clean air of September brings with it the sweet taste of crisp apples , sweet plums and ripe tomatoes. My sauce pot is full every day with salsas, jellies and fresh pasta sauce. Local produce is at its prime and you will find it it in plenty this Saturday. The long hot days of summer are stored in every beautiful ripe tomato just waiting to fill your dinner plates with joy. The Tatamagouche Farmers’ Market is a great place to share the harvest It does not matter whether you are cooking up a storm or just purchasing a few bottles of pickles.

Farmers Markets are not just about shopping.They are also about meeting your neighbors, sitting and having a coffee with people new to town, meeting a new baby for the first and watching them grow Saturday by Saturday.  So cozy up to a Saturday at the market and enjoy the new fall winter schedule of entertainment and information. Remember the market closes at noon during the fall.

Gardening In Tatamagouche

Growing a farmers Market is a lot like growing a garden. Planning and dreaming lead to research and more dreaming and as Dale says this kind of dreaming always leads to a lot of work. But when the work is done and the seeds are planted it’s time to enjoy the results of all those plans.
The end of construction at the creamery square site and the opening of The Grace Jollymore Joyce Arts Centre signals the beginning of a gardening season. The garden beds are finally prepared and await only the tending our community can provide.

If the Grand Opening is an example of the new beginning I am very excited. Our community was well represented. There were performers from all age groups and many different perspectives. Musical theater, choral groups, old time fiddles, vintage rock and blue just to mention a few. Even our local protest group attended the event, raising our media profile significantly.

The market continues to grow. With new faces joining us each week. We still have room in our outdoor area for more grower vendors, so check your gardens it might be a great place to find some extra cash.
