May 4th – the season!

Despite gray skies and drizzly weather, the first Tatamagouche Farmers’ Market of the year was a great success!   Nine vendors showed up this weekend with lots of exciting products -from tasty treats to vibrant green seedlings, wooden cutting boards, toys and treasures, colourful painted dishes, twinkling bottles, pillows and seaside art, cozy crocheted fashions …and on and on and on.  More vendors are expected to join the party as the season continues and offer even more variety.    Rather than taking my word for it, come on out on Saturday- between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.- and see all the beautiful displays for yourself!    See you soon!!!

May the 4th be with you!

It’s an exciting day to get out and celebrate- as the Tatamagouche Farmers’ Marketwill blast off to a new season.   Local vendors and artisans have been organizing and preparing tantalizing products to share with you in the coming months.   Come support community-based businesses and engage with your neighbours while enjoying some of the delicious treats and a coffee.   

As warming temperatures bring thoughts of summer adventures, pick up a few new art pieces for your home deck or cottage, or start planning for those upcoming weddings by getting a head start on shower or wedding presents.   We are expecting to have several of our previous popular vendors there with exciting new inventory, as well as some new food and artisan vendors.  Even more variety will be available as we get into the busier summer season.  But don’t wait for summer!   Get started early!  See you on May the 4th- 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.!!!

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.

Busy weekend

The excitement is building in our community. What a month June can be with everything from graduations, grand opening to snowstorms and tropical depressions!
The gardens are tilled and planted, the blueberries are blossoming and the apples are pollinated and the fruit is set for the year. Wordplay the first major event at Creamery Square, is now a wonderful memory survived by sock puppets and wonderful new books for families to read together.
The market family is taking care of the last minute details for our upcoming Market Fare Dinner taking place on June 27 from 4-6pm. We are very excited to include Deb’s Country Kitchen, Carole’s Corner, Spicy Cravings, Jost, Ironworks Distillery, Appleton Chocolates, All Sauced Up and more.
