Farmer’s Market Wonderfulness

This past weekend we visited the Farmer’s Market in Ridgeway, Ontario. For those reading unsure of where this is, it’s between Fort Erie and Niagara Falls. A cute little town near Crystal Beach on Lake Erie. During the spring and summer, this quaint little town near my home is alive with small shops, restaurants and of course a Farmer’s Market.

I love the relaxed and cool vibe of any Farmer’s Market. Local growers, bakers, crafters and artists selling their goods. I have found that you can always find unique and well priced items. At times, too well priced! Sometimes I want to yell at these people to increase their prices because I’m not sure how they even make any money… But not before getting a steal on great, local product.

This weekend was the last weekend until it starts up again in the spring and I’m seriously considering getting a booth next season… But maybe that’s a future post in the making.

The Ridgeway BIA sponsored free pony rides for the kids, a small straw maze, colouring contest, face painting and free pumpkins. Amazing! So my three year old was in heaven. My heaven was smelling fresh baked goods, rooting through home grown veggies, looking at crafts, jewelry, teas, soaps, etc…. Heaven!!!

I can’t wait until next year to visit again… But until then, it’ll be a long winter online shopping on Etsy.
