Is it wrong to emphasize the massages and treats over the bounty of locally grown and produced fruit, veggies, meat, cheese, bread and wine? No, no it’s not. The farmers’ products speak for themselves, but with the chill in the air, many of us need a little bit of extra motivation to get ourselves to the park on Thursdays.
Here’s the lowdown on this week’s market:
- MP Matthew Kellway will be visiting and available to chat about Federal issues that are on your mind.
- Fa.Real Custom Tees will be there, and if we’re lucky, they’ll have some of their original design East York t-shirts for sale. (This wonderful local biz is a DECA Pop-Up Shop success story!)
- Alterna Savings Credit Union will be handing out info, reusable bags, cupcakes and cookies (yes, you read that right) – come chat with them about their neighbourhood banking services.
- Origin Wellness
The popular RMTs of Origin Wellness (Danforth and Moberly) are back! Erin and Yvonne have been settling into the neighbourhood nicely, and continue to enjoy meeting the great people who live here. By offering complimentary chair massage from 3:00pm to 6:30pm, these two ladies want to show you that receiving regular massage therapy treatments is a fantastic way to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
At the end of the day, the farmers and vendors are why we go to the market, and us buying stuff is the reason that they continue to come. My list is ready: apple cider, red wine, fancy cheese, and some squash for soup. What are you going to get?
Psssst – stay tuned to DECA diaries to hear more about our upcoming October 9th Harvest Festival (taking place at the market). All we’ll say for now is, live music and bouncy castles! Watch this space.
