We don’t usually trade in hearsay here at WestonWeb, where we uphold the highest journalistic standards. I hope you’ll allow an exception today: I couldn’t make it to the opening of the Weston Farmers’ Market (I slept in and had a prior commitment), so my wife went in my stead.
She says it was was “Awesome”. There are many new vendors, including a high-protein cheese guy, Lebanese dips, Fred’s Breads, Collective Arts brewing, a new egg seller, and a swishy coffee vendor.
Almost all of the old favourites were back, too: Pina’s Italian meats, Thames River Melons, Mad Mexican, Grandpa Ken’s Bacon, the fruit and veg seller, the Wiff’s samosas and some others she couldn’t remember as she was getting into bed, though I did press her for the details.
I know that I wasn’t the only one worried about the market, which has had a few rough patches in the past few years, with the loss of some excellent vendors and several moves. It sounds like my worries were misplaced.
