As flowers, fruits and vegetables bloom and ripen, quite often we have more than we can use. Have you ever thought of selling your excess produce?
“There is nothing better than fresh produce and there are all kinds of non-gardeners or visitors to town who would appreciate fresh beans, a bunch of flowers or even a zucchini,” says Tricia Markle, Huntsville 100k Market manager. All you need to be a vendor is a chair and an umbrella for shade, or get together with a group of like-minded gardeners and take a booth. A nominal fee applies.
“We’re making an exception (to the usual booths) for gardeners because, it being Muskoka, produce isn’t ready and there isn’t a lot of it around until now, and of course with the weather,” says Markle. “If you’ve got a couple of baskets (of excess produce), you can come and sell them and go.”
As its name suggests, all of the vendors at the Huntsville 100k Market produce their wares within 100 kilometres of the market. There’s everything from locally grown veggies and maple syrup to a variety of arts and crafts. It runs Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on West Street in downtown Huntsville, beside Trinity United Church.
There is also room for other creators of other goods to rent booth space either on their own or share a tent with a friend, provided everything is made within 100 kilometres.
If you are interested in selling your produce or other wares, look for Tricia at the 100k Market on Saturday mornings or email her at [email protected] for more information.
