Did you get to the Christmas Farmer’s Market?

By David F. Rooney

Did you get to the Christmas Farmer’s Market this weekend? If you did you probably left with some real bargains as local vendors did their best to sell their foods, soaps, jewellery, ceramics and other lovely wares.

Just in case you missed the market you’ll have another chance to purchase high-quality locally produced foods and gift items at next week’s Crime Stoppers’ No Host Bazaar:

In the meanwhile, here are a few photos from the Christmas Farmer’s Market:
