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.

Robin Martin – Children Matter

Author Robin Martin likes kids. Not only is she an Educational Assistant with the local school board, she has gone above and beyond in creating both fun and informative books for children. Her published work has won several awards and they have been adopted in schools as part of their curriculum.

Robin Martin’s first two books, Zoo On The Moon and June Bug Jamboree are colorful cartoon character books tailor-made for young children. Her third book, Someone You Love Has Cancer – A Child’s Guide To Understanding, draws on her personal experiences as a cancer survivor.
