What a great day we had at the Manotick Farmers Market! We met some new fans who signed up for the newsletter, sold some CDs and cookbooks and even met fellow musicians. All told, a fantastic day!
Our fellow vendors were so friendly and offered this newcomer perks like 1.00 coffee (really good coffee) from Coffeys Coffee (still only 1.50 for everyone else) and a dollar off a bag of crunchy Empire apples from Hall's Apple Market -- Yum!
Book lovers will appreciate the huge Carriage Shop used book sale in the building behind my tent (see pic below). I popped in briefly, but was too busy (yay) to shop -- next time!

The fun does not stop at the market -- there are lots of reasons to visit Manotick. Here are just a few events connected to Watson's Mill. It's a happenin' town.
Here's a walking tour :)
I recommend anyone who wants to sell their produce, crafts, art work etc. at the Manotick Farmers Market to get involved now. The season goes till October 11th rain or shine and if you don't delay, there will still be room for a new vendor or two. Hint to vendors -- show up well before 8:30 for setup or you'll be jostling early market goers for parking space!

The organizers from Watson's Mill, located just across the street, have even supplied us with a tent -- very posh. I got to have fun in the sun without giving up the lovely shade -- the CDs appreciated that for sure.

Open from 8:30 am till 2:00 pm Saturdays until October 11th, 2014, the Market stands across from historic Watson's Mill in The quaint town of Manotick, south of Ottawa.
