Little Italy Farmer's Market Opens for the Season

OTTAWA, May 3 /CNW/ - Due to the great success of the Fall and Christmas Farmers' Markets, the Preston Street Business Improvement Area is proud to announce the opening of its 2011 Little Italy Outdoor Farmers Market. This year the market will run for the whole growing season starting May 7th and continuing right through to the Thanksgiving weekend October 8th. The Market will take place every Saturday from 900AM-200PM in the Adult High School Parking Lot near the corner of Preston and Gladstone.

Mixing traditional local produce with local artisanal talent, the market management believes it is important that patrons mingle with the producers themselves. With regular market staples like vegetables, fruit and a variety of meats, the Little Italy Market also boasts locally made fudge, teas and bath soaks, metal works and handcrafted candles.

In order to keep the atmosphere fresh throughout the season, vendors and local businesses will display their unique talents. From a coffee roasting workshop to tips on cooking with garlic, patrons are invited to learn more about the origin of the market products.

Farmers' offerings will change as the growing season progresses, so the listing of Farmers and their produce that will be available for each weekend will be posted on the Preston Street BIA website:

The Preston Street Business Improvement Area believes hosting a local market will reduce environmental impact, support our local economy and bring together the community.

Please join us this season, because as they say 'All roads lead to Preston Street!'
