Farmer’s Market season all-year round in Vankleek Hill


A pair of early spring snow storms, fol- lowed by icy rains, seemed set on dampe- ning everyone’s spirits all across Eastern Ontario. A sunny if blustery mid-April weekend helped to coax people outside, and for many in Vankleek Hill that meant heading over to Vankleek Hill Collegiate to check out what was on the tables at the weekly Farmer’s Market. “We’re one of the only year-round (far- mer’s) markets,” said Laurie McClintock, manager for the VKH Farmer’s Market. The market has been part of the com- munity profile since August 1996. The VKH Farmer’s Market Association board is wor- king on plans now for a 20th anniversary celebration this year. Initial creation of the market is credited to the energetic efforts of Phil Arbor. Since its beginnings, the association now num- bers about 30members, half of themon-site almost every weekend, while the others are seasonal attendees, making their presence felt during spring, summer or fall when their particular produce speciality is available in season. Every weekend during late fall and winter, the farmer’s market sets up in the cafetorium area of the Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute. When the weather warms up and the sun is out, the tables shift outside to the school parking lot area. This community support arrangement with the Upper Canada Dis- trict School Board and the school is one of the main reasons, along with the support and activity of the members, why the VKH Farmer’s Market is able tomaintain its year- round presence. One thing separates the VKH Farmer’s Market from others of its kind: a guarantee of local sourcing for the products. Whatever is on the tables for sale is either homegrown, homemade, homebaked, or homecooked. “The difference between our market and other markets is that everything is from the

vendors,” McClintock said. About a dozen vendors are present during the mid-April weekend session of the mar- ket, chatting with adults browsing the tables, while a few children race around the stage on side of the room, playing tag or hide- and-seek. Not all the people coming to the market to buy are fromVankleek Hill. Some

come over fromneighbouring Hawkesbury and from as far as Ottawa. “Everybody has a different reason for coming here,” added McClintock, “things that they are looking for.” Details on vendors are available at the market and other information is available at
