Downtown Windsor Farmers Market

The fresh local produce of summer is wearing thin and now is the time to visit the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market to cash in on those end of the season deals. If you haven’t been downtown to check out the market this season, here’s what your missing: fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh-cut flowers and potted plants, homemade baked goods, fresh-made perogies and sausages, kettle corn, craft beer, coffee, hand-made crafts, t-shirts, jewelry, books, and much more.

The Downtown Market sets up on Pelissier Street, between Wyandotte and Park, every Saturday, from 8am to 1pm. There are anywhere from 80 to 100 vendors throughout the season, which runs from May 1st to December 12th. During inclement weather vendors move into the lower level of the Pelissier parking garage.

Come visit next Saturday and support a talented group of local authors who write in genres that include women’s empowerment, self-help, crime fiction, travel, paranormal, horror, children’s, mathmatics, and military, along with a collection of colorful book marks.

Here’s your chance to speak with a local author, and get a personally autographed copy of their book. Please come and visit and support local.

Beautiful Words – Creative Bookmarks

When Deanna Fougere contacted my about about setting up a booth to showcase her Beautiful Words Bookmarks at the upcoming Essex County Author Show, I thought, why not? What compliments books better than bookmarks?

Looking to get more from the books that Deanna and the four other women in her book club read, and the ensuing conversation, they came up with the idea to create inspirational bookmarks that questioned and facilitated meaningful reflection and conversations about books.

Their goal: “Spark your thinking and ignite conversation using these thought-provoking questions. Beautiful Words’ mission is to help people read, reflect, and connect with the stories they read and the people around them.” 

If you’d like to see the creative bookmarks of Beautiful Words come visit Deanna Fougere at the Essex County Author Show at The City Market on Saturday, December 12th, between 10am and 3pm.
