OSHWEKEN – The Six Nations Farmers Market closed its season last weekend with perfect Fall weather. The energy was festive as some 170 people came out to pick up their Thanksgiving veggies and goodies.

Rebecca Wilson and Shirley Johnny of Jam Tarts had a weekly vendors spot, selling canned goods and preserves, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables later on in the season. “We had a really good summer. Today’s been really great, the weather has helped us a lot.” shared Wilson. The team added fresh baked pies and cookies to the stall this year. Wilson raved about the baking saying, “She has wonderful Indian Donuts! They sold out by 10:30 a.m. every week.”

Market organizer Jennifer Hill says the response to the market was positive this year.

“It is our third year and we are averaging 100-150 customers a day.” Hill hopes to establish a regular indoor location for a year round market. “We’ll be launching a smaller market type business at the greenhouse on 4th line on the 21st in order to meet the need in the winter.”

Local entertainer Crystal McDonald was also set up singing for patrons who relaxed in the sunshine, drinking coffee and enjoying the day. Family Farms Harvest was also present with some delicious gluten free Sweet Potato Pie, fresh Three Sisters soup, blue corn mush and provided some organic Jerusalem Artichokes for the fall planting season.

The Six Nations Farmer’s Market will open for the 2014 season on Victoria Day weekend.
