29 Full-Time and 14 Occasional Vendors
By Joanne Rodgers, Bruce Peninsula Press
The Lion’s Head Farmers’ Market is opening for the 2022 season, starting on Victoria Day weekend until Thanksgiving weekend, every Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon and until 1 p.m. on the long weekends at “the beach” in and next to the beach pavilion in Lion’s Head.
Market Manager Charlene Jordan is thrilled that so many of the familiar vendors are returning along with some new vendors. Jordan says there will be 29 full-time vendors and 14 occasional vendors.
There will be a wide range of specialty food products from hand made chocolates and freshly brewed coffee, craft beer, maple syrup products, BBQ sauces, sugar cookies and many baked goods.
Jordan is particularly excited to announce there will be freshly baked artisanal bread, fresh Grade A free-range eggs from two new vendors, a new farm producer selling lamb, beef and pork, goat cheese and fresh butter as well as other new farm produce vendors.
New local food Trailer, Wide range of artisans
A local food trailer is serving Breakfast On A Bun, breakfast wraps and meat pies, using locally sourced bacon, eggs and produce purchased from other vendors.
Also available at the Market are flowers, seedlings, artwork, woodturning items, jewelry, alpaca wear, soaps, local soy candles and many more locally sourced items.
New Outdoor Canadiana Muskoka Lounges
This year’s Market will feature two “Outdoor Canadiana Muskoka Lounges” for patrons to relax, eat, chat and enjoy the Market’s community focused and quaint atmosphere. One Lounge will be located near the Beach Pavilion and the other in the area near the Harbourside Stage where local musicians will perform every Saturday during Market hours.
Jordan says “ This is a very welcomed addition to the Market,.”
Jordan was able to secure a $1,000.00 grant which was spent purchasing new signage for the Market.
The Market is looking for volunteers to “Meet and Greet” visitors. On a typical Saturday the market is visited by 600 to 700 persons. That number swells to 1,200 to 1,400 persons on a long weekend.
