I made my second visit to the Ancaster Farmers Market yesterday, and I felt sympathetic towards the vendors, music performers, volunteers and local shoppers who were braving the frigid winds! Cups of hot apple cider were grasped and sipped for warmth by many, and it seems as though winter coats, hats and mitts are making an early appearance this year!
I met with Leah Higens, executive director of the Ancaster Business Improvement Area (BIA), who was busy coordinating volunteers and ensuring that all was running smoothly. She certainly had her hands full — dragging a wagon filled with water bottles and handing them out to volunteers and vendors. Mike McCurley strummed his guitar at the music tent, keeping the mood light and fun. Yet another successful day at the Ancaster Farmers Market despite the chill!
There are three more Wednesday’s left in the month of October. Make the trip by foot or by bike to St. John’s Anglican Church and support local food growers and producers!
