(GANANOQUE, ON) – When we sit down to eat, how many of us truly think about where our food came from? For the most part, we simply consume and assume we have the right to do so without thinking. We may or may not enjoy the meal, we may or may not even notice it as it goes by. Yet every bite has a source, and that source is the farmer.

On September 26, the Farmers’ Market in the Gananoque Town Park tried something a little different. Not only did they conduct business as usual, but they showed their appreciation to those who have shopped with them all season by providing a nourishing meal made from produce from their own farms, kitchens and bakeries. Called a “Harvest Celebration”, it featured a meal of homemade chillies (with or without meat), an array of breads, warm cider and a delicious carrot cake for dessert. Live musical entertainment was provided by Flashback and Mike Bishop. – to read more>
