The food is being seasoned, the wine is chilled and the cider mulled. We're putting the final touches on our year-end Harvest Fest celebration happening this Saturday, November 6th at the market building, 6 - 9:30pm. (address is lots 2 -10 Manitoba Street, St. Thomas)
All of our vendors contributed to the success of the market and also contribute to making this event successful. Special Thanks to the following vendors:
RGrow Farms - donation of decorations, sweet potatoes
Berry Hill Fruit Farms - donation of decorations, produce, and time in getting building ready
Green Leaf Gourmet - donation of delectable sweets for the event
Part Time Peasant - donation of coffee and time at the event
Gredig's Orchards & Cider Mill - donation of apple cider

And special Thanks to Patti Kilmer for the on-going photography and the slide presentation for Saturday Evening
Chef Kim Saunders of Windjammer Inn was at the market last weekend filling her basket with bounty from Kosic's tomatoes, Nature's Perfect mushrooms, Palmer's Maple Syrup, squash & onions from Paul Brown Farms, produce from Jenssen's Farms, and meat from Farmgate Markets. I can hardly wait to see what she is preparing!
The evening is intended to be a time of relaxed, social gathering. We have a few events planned including a mini ceremony to recognize the vendors, a contribution from one of our artist vendors for the market building, and introduction of the Board of Management.
If you have not purchased your tickets yet, they are available at Farmgate Markets at their new location at 19 Elgin Street up until the event or by return email to me or at the door.
Look forward to seeing you there!
PS - This is my last post for a while so Happy Holidays and chat with you again in 2011!
