The Westport Market: Summer 2022

The Westport Market: Summer 2022

Have you been to the Westport Market? Every Saturday from 9am – 2pm, local artisans, farmers, bakers and craftspeople gather to display and sell their latest creations. With over 35 vendors this past Saturday, it was a great time to get out and document the event. The sun was shining, the temperature just right. A perfect day to see some smiling faces. Below are some images I took of the event. As you can see, there is pretty much something for everyone. The Westport Market runs every Saturday until Labour Day weekend.

Canada Day 2022

Canada Day 2022

Canada Day festivities were in full swing yesterday in Westport.

The Canada Day bike parade was also not to be missed. Kids (and parents alike) enjoyed...

Westport Pride’s Q&A Social

Is there a better way to spend an afternoon than at The Cove Inn, down by the water, listening to great music, having great conversations and celebrating love, peace and acceptance? I'd argue with anyone that there really isn't!
