This winter, I am taking a Farmer's Market Manager course offered through Farmer's Markets of Nova Scotia. Yesterday concluded the second of 4 sessions that will happen this winter. In addition to the great material being covered and the wonderful instructor Michelle Wolf of Whole Green Heart, the course is a great opportunity to network with other Market managers and board members in the province. One person I have met in the course is Catherine, the market manager for the Kentville Farmer's Market. In the past, I was always working Wednesdays and so couldn't make it to this market, but seeing Catherine yesterday was a great reminder to shop local on Wednesdays from 10 - 2.
Here's Samson inspecting the haul of goodies this morning! It was nice to be a shopper rather than always a vendor, and to get veggies from different farmers than I usually do (Emily TeBogt and DK Fairn Farm), and to connect with a great local market in my neighbourhood!
