Ray Elgersma is all about local produce in our area.  Not only does he sell at our local Carleton Place Farmer’s Market, he helps out with the Neighbour Hood Tomato Community Gardens at St. Gregory’s  (Catholic School) Next Door in Carleton Place.

Ray has some very exciting news for all of Lanark County. We are going to  have a “Transplant Saturday” June 4th at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market.  This is to expand the concept beyond land use and vegetable transplants to include the idea of ‘transplanting’ of businesses and residents to our community.

CPFM Market vendors will be selling vegetables and flowers for transplanting-and there will be a special event for the kids!  There will also be a workshop on transplanting conducted by Trish Darlington and entertainment will be at the event.

The focus is to have people come to experience and appreciate what we have to offer at the market, and come to know and love our community.
