Would you love to have a warm toastie breakfast at the Market? Food Baby’s Hannah Maguire & Brookelin Peterson will make your day with their selection of delicious toasties starting this week.
Using Crabbes Creek very popular sour dough bread as the base they are making simple but delicious seasonal toppings such as avocado and …. plus as homemade pickles, krauts, sprouts and seed mixes.
Our celebration will include a very SPECIAL activity for school age children.
We are thrilled that local sculptor and artist Marie-France Rose will be working with school age children making clay beads to thread onto a totem pole. When completed and fired the totem pole will form a permanent art installation at the market. In May it well also form part of the M-Arts Trail.
Marie-France – a very popular local sculptor works principally with clay as her favourite medium with each of her pieces being hand built. After the first firing in her gas kiln her clay sculpture becomes her canvas to paint.
Paula, Amanda and Emma from The Family Centre will be available for the littlies at the market in Kiddies Corner where play dough and other activities are available and maybe just a little clay modelling as well.
Please tell all your friends with children to come and enjoy this wonderful activity. See more of Marie-Frances work at https://www.facebook.com/mariefrance.boissonneault or https://www.facebook.com/mariefrance.boissonneaul
