bumblebee1The Haliburton location is into its third week. We’ve been a big hit!

In spite of some bad weather, and the fact that much produce is as yet unavailable due to a late start in the growing season, we still have so much to offer! Seedlings, plants, rhubarb, asparagus, and more are available.

Our thanks to those two musical gentlemen for joining us! We are still welcoming buskers to apply to entertain at our markets, and busker applications are and will remain available on our blog for at least another month.
