Letter to the Editor: A tribute to the Farmer's Market

The vendors at the Farmer's Market in New York Mills have done a terrific job of bringing fresh garden produce and other food stuffs to the old creamery two times a week throughout the summer and into the fall.

It first beings in the spring with preparing the soil, the planting and weeding. In the summer it is harvesting, sorting, cleaning, displaying, putting out the signs. All this in addition to selling at the market.

I appreciate the dedication, work and effort that goes into the market. I enjoy the beauty of the harvest and the ambiance of the setting, the camaraderie of the shoppers and interaction with the vendors. This adds much to the enjoyment and experience of the Wednesday/Saturday event.

A big 'thank you' to all the vendors.
