Milton's Farmers Market is a sure sign of summer's soon arrival.
For over 40 years Milton residents have shown up in flocks every Saturday between May 18th and October 12th for the Farmers Market.
The event offers residents cream of the crop selections of fresh local produce, delicious baked goods, including sweets to satisfy everyone, locally prepared cheeses, flowers and more. Last Saturday I stocked up on fresh asparagus, which is on the menu this evening and delicious bell peppers.
There were over 40 vendors present for opening day with more to join throughout the season. Local businesses open their doors, offering additional treats such as coffee and baked goods.
This is a great way to start your weekend; enjoy a stroll down Main Street, coffee in hand, meeting neighbours and local businesses. Last week I ran into Stacey from Mutt Life along with a few past clients. The event is pet friendly so be sure to bring your furry friends. You'll find a number of water bowls scattered along the sidewalk for them.
I'll be in attendance most weekends to stock up my fridge and socialize with local residents so keep your eyes open for me, my wife Elyshia and Carter. I look forward to seeing you there!
