With Culture Days just finishing, and harvest upon us, Brampton is very excited to decorate the town and local parks for the fall season and traditional annual Thanksgiving celebrations.
It's that time of year again, colourful landscapes, vibrant fashions, contagious smiles and family and friends getting together to break bread and give thanks for another bountiful harvest. Breaking bread with people of different creeds has been a common tradition for centuries here in Canada and it continues today as we celebrate food and the breathtaking fall colours that surround us.
Brampton has something for everyone to enjoy this autumn: nature, culture, sports, entertainment and shopping. Now is the time, if you haven’t already, to stop at the Farmers’ Market for some fresh produce, delectable baked goods and hand-made crafts. There is something for everyone featuring arts and crafts from over 90 vendors!
The Brampton Farmers’ Market runs from 7 am to 1 pm - rain or shine, every Saturday until Thanksgiving Weekend. Located in the Downtown core, the Brampton Farmers’ Market spans from Main Street North between Nelson Street and Queen Street, to Main Street South, between Queen Street and John Street. Be sure to join us this season for fresh produce, meats, dairy, and baked goods, as well as activities for the entire family to enjoy!
You may also want to visit one of Brampton’s beautiful parks during the Thanksgiving weekend for a picnic and to view the vivid fall colours and (falling) leaves. Days are warm and nights are crisp and cool so if you’re out and about for a walk along one of Brampton’s many cool trails or peaceful pathways take a moment and give thanks.
The spirit of Thanksgiving is all about being grateful for our good fortune and giving to those who are less fortunate. For more about Brampton and upcoming special events, visit: http://www.brampton.ca/en/pages/welcome.
