OTTAWA, Dec. 9 /CNW/ - Preston Street BIA proudly presents the Little Italy Christmas Farmers' Market Saturday December 11 and 18 at
Preston Street and Louisa Street in Little Italy. The Market will
feature fresh local produce, meat and Christmas decorations, from our
own area farmers, as well as jewellery, art and gifts from local
artists and craftspeople.
Mario Giannetti, Chairman of the Preston Street BIA says, "We have brought back this market in response to the overwhelmingly
positive reaction we had to our Fall Farmers Markets. Many of our
residents have expressed their wish that we continue giving them access
to fresh, local food. We are just responding to demand."
That's why for the next two Saturdays, December 11 and 18, Preston
Street in Little Italy will be hosting a Christmas Farmers' Market full
of hand-made jewellery and crafts, locally raised turkey, ham and
exotic meats, pies, beautiful trees and wreathes, apples, veggies and
so much more! On December 18th, the merchants and residents of Little Italy will be doing their part
to build Toy Mountain, accepting donations of gifts for local children
who may not receive any for Christmas.
Preston Street is the heart and soul of Ottawa's Little Italy. Having
just completed a $30 million reconstruction and beautification project,
Preston Street is primed to create new attractions to the area, such as
this market. Rich in culture, variety, and bonhomie, Little Italy has
quickly become a must-see cultural destination in the City.
The Preston Street Business Improvement Association was formed in 1986
with the mandate to promote, beautify and advocate for the small
businesses on this traditional mainstreet.
