This Saturday at the market: we are having a contest to guess the weight of a beautiful Lumina pumpkin from the Elishka Farm. The Country Depot in Vankleek Hill has done the official weighing in of the pumpkin. The person who guesses the weight or who is closest wins the pumpkin and a $25 gift certificate for the market, 2nd place gets a smaller pumpkin and a $10 gift certificate for the Country Depot in Vankleek Hill, and 3rd place also wins a pumpkin from the Elishka Farm!
Breakfast/Brunch is being served at the Lamberio Farm table, serving an old time farmers’ breakfast and for lunch BBQ sausages. BBQ wild boar or deer meat sausages at the Trillium Meadows table, and buy fresh corn on the cob at the Avonmore Farm table.
We have a large assortment of vegetables including: garlic, corn, beans, squash, pumpkins, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, beets, kohlrabi, potatoes, mushrooms etc. As well as; organic meat, berries, baking, honey, preserves, wood oven baked bread, gluten free bread, prepared foods, artisans and much more!
Vankleek Hill bucks can be used at the market and are available from the Vankleek Hill Museum on Main Street, Vankleek Hill. The market will be selling the bucks once we go back into the high school. The bucks are a great way to support your community and at the same time you get a 5% discount for local VKH merchants including the farmers’ market, McEwen Gas Station, Mike Dean’s, Sam’s Kitchen etc.
