This Weeks Market!

This Week's Event

Chili Cook-Off! Help us raise money for the West Carleton Food Access Centre as our vendors participate in our Chili Cook-Off! Come sample some homemade chili, choose your favourite and purchase a bowl of it to enjoy - all proceeds go towards the West Carleton Food Access Centre!

We've got a great lineup of homemade chilis that will be a part of our Chili Cook-Off! You can purchase a bowl of one of these chilis at our Events Tent. A big thank you to our generous vendors taking part in this great fundraiser! Here's our list of vendors who will be helping us raise money this Saturday.

We will also be continuing our Food Drive until the end of the month as we continue to collect non-perishable food items for the West Carleton Food Access Centre. In light of the tornado that hit our community, lots of local families are currently relying on the West Carleton Food Access Centre. Please consider bringing along some food items with you at your next Market visit. You can drop off your donations - whether that is monetary or non-perishable food items at our Hostess Info Cart.

About Last Week: CBC's In Town and Out

Last weekend was an exciting experience for our Market as we were lucky enough to be joined by the CBC show "In Town and Out" hosted by Giacomo Panico! They broadcasted their radio show live from inside our Exhibit Hall Barn and interviewed many of our vendors! They also were featuring the community coming together to help out the victims of the Dunrobin tornado. We'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that we will be continuing our food drive in support of the West Carleton Food Access Centre until the end of our season. Stay tuned as we will be sharing the link to the full radio show in the next few weeks.
