CARP – After a two-year COVID-forced exile the Carp Farmers’ Market Easter Market is at long last returning, and bringing with it memories of the pre-COVID farmers’ market return.
“We have exciting news to share with you all,” the Carp Farmers’ Market board of directors released in a statement Friday (March 19). “After two long years of not being able to host our traditional Carp Farmers’ Market Easter weekend Market, all signs are pointing to yes, there will be an Easter Market this year.”
The Easter market will take place Saturday, April 16 from 8 a.m. to 2 pm. at the Carp Fairgrounds, and like all Carp Farmers’ Markets will be 100 per cent producer-only vendors. Parking is free and there is no admission. The market is wheelchair accessible and pet friendly.
“This will be your first chance to shop from our local Carp Farmers’ Market vendors before our season begins May 7,” the board said.
Currently there are still some details to be worked out before the event, but with mask and several other COVID-19 restrictions lifted today (March 21), shoppers are reminded of the pre-COVID community hub the Carp Farmers’ Market used to be before curbed by COVID. ⠀⠀
“Stay tuned for more details, including which vendors will be joining us,” the board said. “We hope you’re just as excited as we are.”
