The chilly and overcast weather definitely seemed to affect the usual early morning crowds at the City Market today, but it was clear the spirit of the vendors was undaunted!
The Queen of Tarts had a beautiful spread, as usual
Like last week, we unfortunately didn’t have much time to spend at the market due to another engagement, but half an hour was enough to pick up the necessities for the week. There were lots of green vegetables to be had (and in the next few weeks, more to come!).
Green peppers from Doef’s
Thai basil from Gull Valley Greenhouses
Red mustard from Greens, Eggs and Ham
Lettuce from Green Valley Farm
Asparagus from Edgar Farms
Although the weather wasn’t optimal, it turned out to be a great day for music at the market – there were three separate acts to enjoy!
Martin Kerr, one of our favourite market buskers
Samantha Schultz, one of our favourite local singers
P.A.L.S. was also on hand today with a book sale to support their literacy programs.
Be sure to check out the market next week; it’ll be a great gateway to the other activities going on downtown on Saturday – the Pride Parade, and of course, the Al Fresco Block Party. See you on 104 Street!
