Can you believe it? There is less than two months to to before the opening of the East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market! While the first day of the market will be June 6th, we will hold the official Grand Opening Celebration on June 13th. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details.
But… what we can tell you is to expect to have all the face painting fun and crafting with Mrs. Darling like in previous years. Plus exciting plans are coming together that include a fresh approach to the festivals and more prepared food so you can grab dinner and do your shopping at the same time!
If you’re looking to get involved this year, here are a few ways you can help out:
- Musicians: I think we can all agree that having live music each week significantly adds to the community vibe that exists at our market. We’re looking for talented musicians who like help create that atmosphere by entertaining market-goers with their musical talents. There is a modest stipend ($25) available and musicians are encouraged to open their cases for donations.
- Cooks: Did you know that someone from our neighbourhood cooks a full dinner meal for the farmers each week? Pretty cool, eh? We have yet to hear of another community doing this for their farmers. If you have culinary skills to share, we’d love to have you. There is a $20 stipend available to help defray the cost.
- DECA Table Volunteers: Can’t play music? Can’t cook? Want to help but are short on time? No problem! Can you sit in a chair and smile? We’re looking for volunteers to sit at the DECA info table for one of two shifts per Thursday? (There is also some set-up or take-down involved) Help answer questions about DECA and the market. Don’t worry, we’ll give you all the answers!
If you have other ideas on becoming involved please don’t hesitate to connect with us by emailing Shelley . We’d love to hear from you! Or perhaps you are or know a local business that would like to sponsor an event? We’d really love to hear from you!

First thing’s first. Have you checked out the pop-ups yet? February is a short month so if you don’t get out there now and show your support with your feet and your wallet, the month will be over and you will feel badly. So get on out there and visit your local pop-ups.
Second. These pop-ups are awesome, but they take work. And we’re getting a little bit tired. We need some help. Big bits of help and little bits of help. If you’re interested in finding out how you can help in a big way or a small way, we’d love for you to mark Thursday, February 21st at 8 p.m. on your calendar. We’re meeting to talk about next steps and what jobs need to be done to get us there.
