Milton Farmers Market Starts THIS WEEKEND

Vegetables at Farmer's MarketIt’s BAAAAACK!

You know that winter is gone and summer is approaching when the Milton Farmers Market is back open for business.  From 7AM to 12PM you can sample more than 40 vendors fresh produce, great food, fantastic people and even catch a glimpse of Milton’s own treasure, Ann Kornuta, as she works her magic and paints another great masterpiece while entertaining the crowd.

From the Chambers website:

Every Saturday morning from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM
From May 14 to October 8, 2011
Downtown Milton on Main Street from Martin to James

Check out the 2011 Farmers’ Market Vendors

Nestled in the foot of the scenic Niagara Escarpment, the Milton Farmers’ Market has been bringing farm-fresh goodness and old-fashioned hospitality to Main Street, in downtown Milton, since 1972. Our farmers proudly display “picked fresh this morning” produce and the streets come alive with artisans and flower vendors. The Milton Chamber of Commerce operates the weekly Saturday morning event from May through October and is one of Ontario’s best outdoor Farmers’ Markets. The 2010 Market will host over 40 vendors.

The most popular spot at the market is the Chamber Scholarship Café, home of the “bacon-on-a-bun” the café sells this delectable treat to all visitors to the market. The Café is also operated by the Chamber and generates funds for the Chamber Scholarship Fund which offers annual scholarships to all local high schools. A great breakfast for a great cause!

For questions, comments, a list of vendors or to reserve a booth email farmersmarket@miltonchamber.ca

I know I’m excited about the start of the Market.  If you havent had the opportunity to take it in, I strongly urge you to head out to Downtown Milton and take in the atmosphere.  And yes, the “bacon-on-a-bun” is AWESOME!

See you there.

The list of the entertainers is out for this weekends 3rd Annual Street Festival.  All the details can be found at the Milton DBIA website .

One of my personal favourites The Randalls will be playing again along with dozens of other entertainers and bands throughout the day.  If you were there last year, you’ll know what I mean that there is no shortage of things to do.

The fun starts at 3pm and goes until midnight.  Milton Transit will be free that day, courtesy of Mattamy Homes, so if you can avoid taking the car it would be great as parking in and around will be pretty tough.

Here’s a copy of the bus schedule for the day.

Whether its to take a nice walk down main street and partake of the vendors or if you want to kick back and listen to some good entertainment, it is really a great way to spend an afternoon taking in what makes this town as great as it is.

Hope to see you there!!!!
