The first one took place this past week. Despite some drizzly skies, there were plenty of folk out to check out what was on offer.
There were strawberries, fresh from the field; rhubarb and garlic and radishes - and as the farmer said, there is more produce coming in every week as the local crops come to harvest. Beekeepers were there, with a hive so we could watch the busy creatures at work and marvel at them. Bees are such a critical part of the ecology, and they are in trouble, so we all need to do our part to help them survive (because their survival ensures our survival)
Maple syrup producers were there, and artisans, craftspeople, photographers. The local Garden Centre had a display...
There was, in short, a little of everything.
Jim Allen, who calls one of Dwight's heritage houses home, brought great music that truly added to the atmosphere.
This is going to be a wonderful addition to Dwight. Just a short walk from the best public beach in the Township of Lake of Bays, it will be just one more great reason to spend some time in the village.
