I have had an rocky relationship with the farmer’s market. I did not really like it the first time I went to vend. It was hard for me. I said I would NEVER go to another farmer’s market. We’ll, I guess I am now eating my words. Today is market day.
The Erin market has been a long time coming. The town of Erin is a lovely little place just outside of Toronto. The people are friendly and the landscape is beautiful. A surprising number of small farms are in the area. This time going to market is a little different. Artisans have been included in the market! A small group of dedicated volunteers have brought this wonderful venture to pass.
So, I am packing up my wares and travelling to market. I have my table, displays, pricing, flyers, and most important of all, the drum carder. Yes, I am going to represent homegrown products, but not food. I am bringing my wool and my herbs. From 3pm until 7pm every Friday throughout the summer I will occupy a small part of the Erin Fair Grounds.
I am really looking forward to it this time. Come and visit me, and my drum carder and see how felt is made!
