This Weeks Market!

This Week's Event

HAPPY CANADA DAY! This Saturday we celebrate Canada’s 150th with a BIG birthday bash! Not only is Canada turning the big 1-5-0, but we also turn 27! Stop by the Events Tent for cake (cake cutting ceremony starts at 10:30am) and be sure to visit KIDS’ CLUB corner as they have a Canada Day party for kids with lots of fun activities and games!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out last week to our 2nd Annual Carp Herb Festival! The weather was fantastic and we are so grateful that you all continue to shop and support our local producers. We hope you can join us again at the Market and be sure to visit us again at our Garlic Festival in August! Also big congrats to our Salsa Contest winner Tara who walked away with both the judges favourite and fan favourite awards! She was gifted with a cart filled to the max with items donated by our very own Carp Market vendors. Thanks to everyone who participated and to everyone who voted.
