It was the first day of operation this season for the Lions Farmers Market that set up in the south end of the Burlington Centre parking lot.

The weather was perfect; people strolled in, cleared the entrance where you are expected to squirt the disinfectant on your hands and begin looking at the produce.

Right to your tableAnd produce there was – the pictures tell that story.

The crowds weren’t great and there were a lot of empty places for the significant list of farm participants this market has had in the past.

It was week day – Saturday will tell the story.

There were plenty of Lions people on site welcoming as you came in and ready to answer any question.

You need a big bag when you leave this table – they had something of everything that comes out of the ground.

Empty spaces

Lot of space for additional farmers – expect it to be busier on the weekend.

    Fridays are my favourite market days and I expect the market will be busier soon as strawberries arrive and as people realize it’s open. I think Wednesday is normally the quieter vendor day? I love this market and go every week. Just remembered the best chocolate raspberry muffins ever … . Thanks to everyone involved!

      I love the frozen pies sold by Allison’s on Friday’s–I’m particularly fond of chicken and curry chicken. Very fresh ingredients and taste great.

    The reason there are not too many vendors yet is that it is still early in the growing season. But the market is open and ready to go in spite of, and in compliance with, the lockdown rules. Just wait — strawberry season coming soon.
