Back at the Market, Sunday Aug. 31

I'll be back at the Market this Sunday, after my hiatus during the EX. While the Ottawa Farmers' Market was relocated to Sylvia Holden Park, I enjoyed selling at other festivals and Art in the Park events. Before and after I set up, I like to check out this sculpture by Tim DesClouds, The Cows Fly Home on Sunday, situated on a pole outside the "Cattle Castle". The following poem is on the plaque below:
The Cows Fly Home on Sunday
Wind from the east, is bad for man and beast,
Wind from the south, is too hot for them both,
Wind from the north, is of very little worth,
Wind from the west, is softest and best. Old Farmer's Almanack, 1851

Summerfolk 2008

This is a new t-shirt design that debuted at Summerfolk this last weekend. Summerfolk is a festival tucked into Kelso Beach in beautiful Owen Sound on Lake Huron. We took the boys and camped right on the site, close to the stage along with all the other artisans. The weather was perfect, the music was fine and the view was majestic. We have come to know alot of fine people there, over the past 10 or so years, and the festival has definitely become a sweet spot in my summer. Thanks to all the folks who stopped in at our booth! Hope to see you again next year.

I will not be at the Market Aug. 10,17 and 24th

The Ottawa Farmers' Market is relocating to Sylvia Holden Park during the EX, and I am NOT planning to be there on the 10th, 17th and 24th of August. The Market will continue during this time with many of the Market regulars, so stop by and check out the lovely park atmosphere. Here are the details:

Strathcona Park--keep your eyes on the weather!

Well, tommorow is Art in Strathcona Park. Keep your eyes on the skies and note that they have posted a raindate for Sunday. Currently, the forcast is for rain late in the afternoon, and there are also showers forcasted for Sunday, so...? I suspect that unless it is pouring rain first thing in the morning, that they will go ahead with it on Sat. I am usually set up at the Somerset st. end of the park, on the path not far from the parking area.
