The Farmer’s Market

The Farmers’ Market

By David Smith August 29, 2009


The market’s getting crafty;

It has its gems of life.

Some look like little chick lets;

Well polished and so bright.

Woven together, some with wire or thread

The artists are finely schooled;

The knowledge they are fed.

At night they make their wares;

And bring it in for sale.

The Farmers’ Market of colour;

With others we compare.

So we see the peaches,

The plumbs and tomatoes too

Now little gems of value.

Always something new.

    On Aug 29th we had new vendors. A group of women make jewellery and sew it together with thread or wire. Sell it at the Market and call it a craft.
    Now it’s the harvest where fruits and vegetables are in full swing. Join us at the Farmers Market at Sylvia Place here in the Falls.
