It’ll be a berry good day at the market again this Saturday – strawberries, tayberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, gooseberries, and currants!  I love our market from my head to-ma-toes – lots of tomatoes and fresh veg too. Looking for local protein for that special summer BBQ? Boughneath Farms (beef) and Country Wools (lamb) can satisfy your needs (still waiting to hear from Captain Pete). Bill Johnson, a local bluesman with an international following, graces our stage on Saturday.  “He’s an unsung hero of Canada’s  blues and roots music scene” (Holgar Petersen, CBC Radio, Stoney Plain Records).
