more local farming & gardening news

There is a couple of things going on locally that might be of interest to my regional readers! 

Tomorrow, Wednesday February 13th the North Bay Heritage Gardeners will be hosting one of their Free Evenings of Education. The topic will be "How to chose plants to extend the season" and will be presented by a very knowledgeable local grower, Lucy Emmott. The event is free, and is being held at Discovery North Bay Museum from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. Visit the event Facebook page for more info.

And I got this press release in my email box a few days ago from the North Bay Farmers' Market...
North Bay Farmers’ Market is moving!

Once again, it is that time of year when the farmers, producers, artisans and crafters come out each Saturday to share local offerings with their community.

This season we, the North Bay Farmers’ Market 2013 Board, are happy to announce the much discussed and anticipated move! The Vendors will be setting up at Lot #10 behind the Bus Terminal on Oak Street. In the past we have had over 30 Seasonal Vendors, with a long waiting list for those who were interested in a spot as an Occasional Vendor when the opportunity arose. We are excited as this new location will allow us to offer more Seasonal Vendor booths; there-by offering more of what North Bay has come to love from the Market, fresh locally grown products, food producers, artisans and crafters.

North Bay residents will soon be able to wander through the Market, while catching up with old friends, listening to great live music and enjoying the fresh air. Beginning May 18th, the Market will be open every Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.– RAIN or SHINE through to Thanksgiving…now at the new location, the Oak St. parking lot behind the North Bay Bus Terminal, corner of Wyld and Oak Streets.

Not only will the Market be able increase our Vendor numbers but we will also have considerably more convenient parking spaces. There is parking on the west side of the Discovery North Bay Museum, as well as parking to the east of the new Market location. Watch for signs to direct you…
