Second Winter Market slated for Feb. 20

Don’t miss the second edition of the EcoSociety Winter Market’s on Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Don’t miss the second edition of the EcoSociety Winter Market’s on Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hart Hall (501 Carbonate St.). There will be two more Winter Markets after this one on March 19 and April 16. All the products on offer are hand-made or locally grown so you know you are strengthening the local economy when you shop at these markets

EcoSociety markets and events director Jesse Woodward said “the first Winter Market in January was wonderful, fun and well-attended and I think it goes to show that people love markets all year around which is so great.” He also said “knowing that you are supporting your neighbours at these markets really makes the whole shopping experience a wonderful and fulfilling event.”

Bring your family and friends and come support our amazing resident farmers, crafters and artisans. A $2 donation is requested at the door to help the EcoSociety cover the costs of these winter markets.
