Come to the Canterbury Community Farmers Market this Wednesday, August 21st from 4- 6:30 p.m. and plan a meal featuring pasture-raised chicken, pork, beef, bison, (yes, bison in Canterbury!) bacon, sausage, etc. This is an opportunity to meet the farmer and ask how their meat was raised. You won’t get THAT at the grocery store!
To round out the plate, our local vendors will also have a good selection of fruit and veggies, dairy, eggs, maple, and sweet stuff, fresh baked goods, flowers, pickled produce and fruit jams, and selected crafts.
Below is just a tiny sampling of what our hard-working vendors have to offer this week. Check to see what ready-to-eat goodness is available this week! There is no reason to be hungry at the Market!!
