Copious Crafters

Week three of the Tantallon Village Farmers Market was once again well attended with a mixture of both new and familiar faces in the crowd. There was again lots of produce on display, but this weeks focus is on crafters and their products, all of which are hand crafted locally and which present a wide variety of materials, styles and purposes. We could go on at considerable length about any one of these vendors but the best options is to attend the market in person to check out their work. The number of vendors at the market has been growing every week with a total of 15 on hand today.

Leather goods Decoupage Wood products
Repurposed cloth items

The day was fully sunny and quite warm which may explain why numbers were down slightly from last week but then again we are in the heart of vacation season which may also have something to do with it. Still, there was a steady stream of people entering the market right up to minutes before closing time.
