What’s going on at Main St – Aug 19

It’s going to be another great Wednesday at the Main St Station Market (2pm-6pm)… come on down for a treat, or to pick up your full list of mid-week groceries, we’ve got everything you need!

Some vendors you should look out for this week:

BobAli Hummus, Pestos, and Tapenades: If you haven’t tried them before, here is your chance! The unique and delicious flavour combinations in these spreads and dips will not disappoint! They will be at the North End of the market.

Littlehomecook: Try one of their yummy “petit loaves”, the perfect-sized baked good for one person! Get them quick..they sold out the last time they were at Main Street!

Nice Pops:  Need to cool down on your busy Wednesday afternoon? Grab a ‘nice pop’ from Melissa at her wooden bicycle cart. These fresh fruit popsicles are handmade with local seasonal produce, and lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar.

See you there!
