On your Mark, Get Ready, Set….

And Go!

We are ready to go, and we can barely wait! Your vendors overwhelmingly decided that they would like to come back early to greet you!

Over the next few weeks, you will start to find many of your favourite vendors on a regular basis! Additionally, we are super excited and happy to welcome some brand new faces.

Some of your favourite vendors will be moving around, some will have moved into the dome this week and some will be moving a bit later on. While it might be confusing at first, we hope that you will use it as a time to take a good look around, you just might find something you haven’t seen before!

This Saturday, April 1st, we welcome back all of your favourite food vendors! Syrian Delights, Spicy Kitchen and Shree Curry Place who have been rotating, will now be back to serve you on a weekly basis! You will find Lema and the Spicy Kitchen in the dome along with Jiggy Java who will still have her Jiggy muffin and sandwiches available, Shree Curry place will join Big Cove Foods, Big Willie’s Brunch and West Side Bistro in the Market building.

We also welcome first time vendor Mack Mariplex with gourmet popcorn! They have been patiently waiting for us to make room! Show them some love by visiting them this Saturday!

NGFM 2016 Gift Guide- Part 1 For Him

Here we are…a little later than hoped. We had wanted to get this out a little sooner but Mother Nature had other plans and Winter came roaring in like a lion bringing snow, wind and power outages to our area. And it’s not really even winter yet!

Weather or not, the 2016 Christmas and Holiday season approaches and once again you are looking for just the right gift for the people on your list. Whether you’re buying for a teacher, a boss, a close friend, acquaintance, family member or secret Santa, the Market has just the right thing…and for every budget. Something unique and personal made with quality and love that represents the person you are gifting to.

Don’t forget that shopping local is so very important. You are directly helping a small business person and their family this season. Shopping local provides a ripple effect in our community. For when you purchase from one of our vendors, they have to make more product. They must then replenish their materials by purchasing supplies and they can also then spend the money they make at other local businesses and organizations in our community. We are happy to provide a space for more than 50 local farmers,  food producers, crafters and artisans from our community every week.

Looking for suggestions? This gift guide is a multi-part series that will help you find just the right thing. If you are looking for additional help, please ask at the welcome table located by the ATM or find the market Manager, Kristi (that’s me) and I will be happy to show you some suggestions while you’re at the Market. If you still aren’t sure what to get, we have Market gift certificates. They come in increments of $10 and can be spent with any vendor at the Market. The proceeds of your gift go straight to vendor as this is a service the Market provides for customers and vendors alike.

Now let’s get on with some gift suggestions for him. Click on the image for a description. And don’t forget to check out the other parts of the series when they are released, because there are many gifts that fit in multiple categories like chocolate, cheese and more.

We are open every Saturday through December 17th from 9am until 1pm and don’t forget our special weeknight Market on Wednesday, December 7th from 4pm until 8pm! We are located at 261 Glasgow St in New Glasgow, NS.
