If you'll be spending the summer camping or just toasting marshmallows in the back yard, it's a good idea to educate yourself about campfire safety. Keep the following tips in mind.



With so much to do on Canada Day weekend when you live in the first capital of Upper Canada, this Saturday’s Farmers' Market is the perfect way to start it off right!  Our farmers and vendors will be showing their Canadian pride this Saturday; customers will have a chance to vote for the vendor that has the best decorated booth.  The winning vendor will receive a “SupperMarket for 2” package, to enjoy at our Wednesday night event. This Saturday @ The Market, you will find cherries, beets, lettuce, beans, garlic scapes, peas, new potatoes, radishes, herbs, and more. Forgot your shopping bag?
