Santa’s Gone Until Next Year–Carleton Place Farmer’s Market Wish List



Well, Santa left a good month ago – and occasionally, Santa doesn’t bring gifts that he knows your parents wouldn’t want around the house, like an eight-foot-tall teddy bear or a pony or for me and the rest of our market– bakers and things for the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market.

So, we are asking the locals to still bask in the holiday warmth with our wish list.  How can you help us become the most talked about Farmer’s Market around?

Well this is what we are looking for:


1. Raspberries

2. Someone with a greenhouse that has early vegetables they would like to sell and share with Carleton Place

3. More fruit vendors (we have applies, strawberries)

4. Someone with Spring Vegetables like asparagus, wild leeks, fiddleheads, early greens.

5. Bakers (artisan bread, plain old normal bread, sugar free baker, fancy ass baker with cakes and cupcakes and fancy cookies.

6. Someone who makes salad dressing would be sweet.

7. Cheese

8. Eggs, but has it has to be a properly graded egg so, we need a larger producer. That’s the government rules… we don’t make them.

9. We could likely use some more high quality meat….someone who sells pork, or chicken,  full time. Like the Elvis cow above! If the meat can sing “Viva Las Vegas”–well, that’s optional or a plus depending how you look at it:)

10. Youth vendors–If you are under 18 you get a discount-Let’s see those talented kids of Carleton Place come out and show us their wares!

Thank you for helping us– and see you May 14th!
