Trout Lake – May 9

It’s Opening Day at Trout Lake and we’re celebrating 20 Years with the vendors, shoppers and members who have gotten us this far. Read on to learn about Opening Day festivities, suggestions for Mother’s Day, news about beer, wine & cider sampling, and suggestions on how to walk, cycle or take transit to the market…

Opening Ceremony: Join us at 8:45am to hear from our founding manager, Devorah Kahn, Executive Director, Tara McDonald, board member, Lenore Newman and Deputy Mayor, Andrea Reimer. Stick around to enjoy sweet treats founding vendors, Chris from Blackberry Hill and Debbie from Small Pleasures

Pick up something for Mother’s Day: here just a few suggestions:

  • Something for the garden: Visit Farmer Koo, G & K Garden, Lowland Herb Farm, Gloucester Green Nursery, South Grove Nursery or Christina’s Garden for flowering bushes, veggie and flower starts, Japanese maples, hanging baskets and more
  • Something for her table: Pick up some cut flowers from Warmerdam Flowers or beautiful bees wax candles from von Hardenberg Candles
  • Something for the kitchen: Don Asperin has handmade cutting boards and Matthew Freed’s pottery will brighten up any kitchen

Of course, making a meal with artisan cheeses, local meats, and farm-fresh produce wouldn’t hurt either. Check out our interactive market map to see who will be onsite

Sample beer, wine & cider! We’ve got R&B Brewing Company, Earlco Vineyards Ltd and Howling Moon Cider House on site handing out samples. Try them all and pick up your favourite bottle, six-pack or growler!

Getting to Trout Lake can be tricky: there is extremely limited parking in the area. Check out our blog post for suggestions on how to access the market by foot, bicycle and transit.

See you at the market!
