Ottawa Farmer’s Market
May 6, 2008
The Ottawa Farmer’s Market opened this past Sunday, May 4th at Lansdowne Park and I decided to finally go for the first time. I parked my car in the free parking lot (always a bonus) and headed towards the throngs of people.
It was really organized and there was a variety of stuff for sale. I was most interested in the Bloody Dock from Acorn Creek Garden Farm:
At $5 a pot I didn’t buy it and instead gave in to my growling stomach with a breakfast from Bearbrook Farm that included game meat sausage at the Food Court. A few vendors caught my eye while strolling through the market: the Glengyle Garlic vendor from whom I bought some Music seed bulbs last year and never put in the ground (oops!), a sheep vendor with $90 sheep skins, and Take Charge Teas with their different blends of herbal teas. There was also a couple of miniature horses from Mickie’s Miniatures for me to feed and pet:
Unfortunately these minis were only here for the one day though you can get a ride with Max and Willie, two Clydesdale horses from Navandale Farm, throughout the season. This year the Ottawa Farmer’s Market will be opening on Thursdays starting June 26th from 2 PM – 7 PM.
