This Weeks Market!

This Week's Event

We're back! And it's time for our Harvest Celebration! Come celebrate the bountiful harvest with us this Saturday from 8am to 1pm! Back this year Carp's own Ridge Rock Brewery will be back with a special beer tasting. We'll have fall displays of pumpkins and gourds perfect for those fall family photo shoots. Our KIDS’ CLUB Harvest Scavenger Hunt is back too! And you can enter our FREE draw for your chance to win a Harvest basket filled with fall produce donated by our vendors, just in time for Thanksgiving! PLUS maple taffy on snow and help us fill the bushels with food for the West Carleton Food Access Centre! Let’s see how many bushels we can fill with non-perishable food items!
