Party at the Market

The good news is that local gardeners seem able to count on a good rain every Tuesday.
The bad news is that the forecast for rain has forced us to postpone Party at the Market for a second time. A new date, sometime in September, will be confirmed in our September newsletter.
When we’re able to hold Party at the Market (third time’s the charm!), it will include additional great flea market finds we’ve continued to collect, and even more jewellery, books, art cards, and other good stuff, along with music by Brian C Folk Music.
The event will (eventually) be presented by the Tantallon Village Farmers Market, the Seniors Association of St. Margaret’s Bay, the Community Enterprise Centre, Peggy’s Cove Area Festival of the Arts, and the Western Halifax Community Learning Network.
We promise, it will be worth the wait.
Note: Purchases can be made at the flea market at the CEC by cash only. The Tantallon Village Farmers Market now offers Market Dollars (photo, above). Buy these by etransfer or credit at the Lodestone Soap/Heppy Pies booth near the market entrance and use them just like cash at all market vendor locations.
