The Spences Bridge Farmer’s and Flea Market isn’t just a place to pick up a few veggies and trinkets; the organizers have a grander vision. The concept of the market has also been to nurture local, globally responsible choices in the community, and to bring the community together as folks buy, swap, trade and visit.
Further to that end the market is planning to take part in the International Day of Peace on Sunday, Sept. 21. All are encouraged to bring a drum to the market, aim to be there at 1pm as the group holds a Drumming for Peace session.
The market is a great place to start your Christmas shopping, get your seasonal bounty to preserve for the winter, and always interesting browsing and socializing.
The final market day is Oct. 5. In order to honour, thank and celebrate all the vendors and the clients the market committee has planned a special turkey on a bun and pumpkin pie lunch – by donation. Without all the vendors, the market would not have experienced the success that it has, and of course what’s a market without customers? All are invited to join the festivities and share in some fall bounty as the market celebrates the close of their first successful season.
