How Do You Like Them Apples!
Saturday at the Pugwash Farmers' Market is your last opportunity to buy raffle tickets on a basket full of goodies from market vendors.
This is SO the basket you want to win!
Money raised will be matched by the Scotiabank in Pugwash and all the money is going towards the planned improvements to the market, including permanent vendor kiosks with retractable awnings.
Already, new improvements are making a different to the market. Gravel pathways are making it feel more like a market and making it easier to access all vendors. Nothing like good traffic flow to improve sales!
A second, long-term fundraiser are these wooden apples. Here, market president Danielle VanDalen and market manager Nancy Burgess-Graham model the red and green versions that will be nailed to the membership tree painted on the side of the market shed.
The apples cost between $25 and $100 dollars. A bird's nest is $250. All in support of the How Does Your Market Grow campaign.
The market opens at 8:30 am and runs until 1 pm. Don't forget to buy your raffle tickets!
