Winding down at Antigonish

This coming Saturday, December 22, will be your last chance to come visit me at Antigonish Farmer's Market until it re-opens again next spring. Dress warm though, because even with the space heaters, it is still very cold in the barn. Last Saturday moisture was freezing in the roof space and falling as showers of tiny snow flakes. But even so everyone was very cheerful and busy buying produce and gifts. One lady turned up with a basket of kittens looking for new homes and it wasn't long before they were all adopted. Not a bad way to get rid of kittens, but it would have been better if the mother had been fixed before the accident happened.

I have to say that I have been very pleased with both the way the market is run, and the support shown to me by the people of Antigonish, and I thank you all very much. It is very encouraging, and I will be looking at ways to show my wares at other markets around the province next year. The new market that is planned for Halifax looks very exciting in terms of its "green" construction. I hope that one day I might be able to show my work there. Here is a short video presentation outlining its construction:
