Exeter Farmers’ Market has beautiful location
Few farmers’ markets could boast a more beautiful setting than Exeter Farmers’ Market.
In recent years the market has moved to the delightful horticultural gem of MacNaughton Park in the northern part of the town.
The market still operates Thursdays, as it has from the beginning in 2009 when it was started as an initiative of the local Business Improvement Area. Today it’s been taken over by The Cultural Collective, a South Huron-based organization working to provide opportunities for artists and cultural workers in South Huron and area.
The market is held Thursday afternoons from 3 to 7 p.m. Shoppers can choose from local produce, baked goods, meat, eggs, preserves and plants while enjoying performances by different local musical groups or stopping to sample the barbecue.
The market opens May 24 this year and goes until October 4. The market has a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/exeterfarmersmarket.
