The Telegraph Journal wrote an article with more info on the market way back on August 28 - read it here.
Greg and I were pretty pumped about the market, it's even closer than the regular market, which is saying something given that's only a 5 minute walk down the street. The Queen Square market was about more than just food, there were crafts, pottery, flowers, a guy talking about compost, and of course lots of fresh veggies - pretty standard. But the idea of the market being in a different part of town where people might not venture is pretty great for the city.
Here are a few things I saw:
|Check out his beautiful guitar, and neat-o stands!|
|How the space was divided up and identified to vendors|
|Candles that look like food?|
|I'm not quite here yet, but SJ is growing on me|
A few shots to help visualize the space if you're unfamiliar:
|That's a statue of Samuel de Champlain |
(or Sam de Cham as people call him here)
|Wood powered oven for pizzas|
|My friend Andre got to hold the pizza flipper!!|
I hope this market becomes more of a regular thing, maybe next summer? It was great to have it outside, but I have a feeling people might be hesitant to buy into it given the unpredictability of SJ's weather!
