Downtown Cooperative Marketing Grant

BUILDING COMMUNITY387111_508191255864407_1048538891_n

Because our Chamber of Commerce has worked so hard for our village for the last three years, we are finally able to apply for a Cooperative Marketing Grant. We will use this opportunity to explore the idea of buying a new shed, which will serve not only as a storage unit for tables and chairs and tents (creating a more attractive, pedestrian friendly, distinctive and successful event) but also as a advertisement board for local businesses. The Paisley Farmer’s Market is not just about focusing on locally grown food, but also about being an attraction and springboard for the local business community. Thank-you very much to the Chamber for all their work and we can wait to further our assistance in the community this way.

Barbara's Baking May 2013


What a lovely day we had for our first market day!  We had 11 vendors in all and it was wonderful to see so many of our faithful customers returning again and again.


The most popular booth was the big wagon of perrenial and annual flowers from Horst’s Greenhouse. Angus Horst May 2013

The new vendors were:

1. Mary Jo McGillivary selling Epicure products and hosting a findraiser for Tim Bosma’s family.

2. Abby Miner, manager of the Wiarton market bringing her Maple Syrup products.

20130518_091131Our faithful return vendors were: Paul Martin, selling maple syrup and preserves, Barbara Weber selling baking, Paisley Highlands selling certified organic meat products, Fabulous Fish ( new hosts: Zachary & Isaac) selling rainbow trout from Manitoulin Island, The Rural Gardeners, Adrianna and Michelle with baking , preserves and tomatoe plants, Lena selling preserves and handmade hats, It’s All About Bling, Wendy Tanner selling handmade jewelry and Greta Vanderley selling handmade knitted and wooden crafts.20130518_092017

 After the glowing article so nicely written by MarthAnn in the Paisley Advocate, the fact that the Ransome’s didn’t show up surprised us all and many of our customers. It seems that they have decided not to come at all for the entire season. They will be sadly missed.

Every time a door is closed unexpectedly, it makes everyone stop and think. Hmm. What next? So, because we know that our customers loved the Ransome’s booth where they could sit and visit on Saturday mornings, ournext move will be to offer this opportunity to organizations in the village to serve our customers prepared food as fundraisers for themselves. This is a wonderful opportunity for Paisley. I hope many groups will take us up on it. We are all happy that our first day of business was also a big help to Back Eddies and The Big Dipper Bakery because we value these comrades very much.

Next week we are looking forward to seeing the North Canoe brought by the Saugeen Paddlers. It is a great photo opportunity so come on down.20130518_092017

Tribute to our fellow vendor

Sad News:
Leo Vanderley, of Walkerton, a vendor at our market passed away this week. He was 79 years old. You will remember him and his wife Greta, selling baby blankets and intricate carvings, wind chimes and scrubbies among many other things. You can pay your respects and offer your condolences at the Cameron Funeral Home in Walkerton, Thursday, Jan 17 2-4 and 7-9 and the funeral will be at the Paisley Missionary Church on Jan 18 at 11 am.
He will be sadly missed at our market. He was a lovely, friendly addition.
