This Week's Event

Pie Contest! Happy Thanksgiving weekend! Today we are holding our annual Margaret Hobbs Memorial Pie Contest. This year’s pie is pumpkin! If you interested in entering the contest please visit our website for full contest rules. All pies must be dropped off at our Hostess Info Cart by 11:00am, Saturday October 12th, 2019. 

Thank you to everyone who came out last weekend and made our Harvest Celebration Market so special. With your generosity we filled 6 big bushels of food and raised $1000 for the West Carleton Food Access Centre! Congratulations to the winner of our Thanksgiving Basket of local produce, Janet J., and the sibling team of Penelope & Patrick K. who won our KIDS' CLUB Scavenger Hunt pumpkin carving prize!
