This Week's Event

Happy Canada Day long weekend! We’re kicking off the long weekend with a Canada Day party! Be sure to visit our KIDS’ CLUB booth as we celebrate Canada Day with fun activities and prizes to be won!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Herb Festival last weekend. Your continued support for our local vendors means the world to us. We hope you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon! A big congratulations to our Gift Basket Draw winners, Susan & Jocelyn who both won gift baskets filled with items donated by our Carp Market vendors!

Information Section

If you are a regular at our Market you may have noticed that Glengyle Garlic has not been in attendance at our Market this season. Donna has been a longtime vendor at our Market and a staple booth to visit for many. We appreciate the many messages of concern wondering where she's been and thought we'd give you all an update. Here's a little note from Donna of Glengyle Garlic in regards to her absence:

 

Dear Fellow Members and Customers of Carp Farmers’ Market

As a vendor, it is with deep regret that I am not participating in this year’s market for health reasons and for which extended rest is the prescription.  I look forward to visiting and future participation, eg the Garlic Festival.

I am missing dear friends like Mali, Laurie, the McGregors, the Donaldsons to name a few. A special thanks to the wonderful Cassanto and Cleghorn families whose members were and are such superb assistants to Glengyle Garlic. 

The Carp Farmers Market is a jewel of a creation – the excellence of produce and products, the great organization by first Jim and now Ennio.  Most importantly there is such a “feeling of family” which pervades throughout.  You are the embodiment of “No one eats alone”.

With Gratitude, Love and “Happy Eating”

 - Donna Davidson, Glengyle Garlic
