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.

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

As I look out my office window today, one week ago from Westporch Fest, I can't help but acknowledge how lucky we got. The damp, drizzly rain that is blanketing the village today, could have been last Saturday, effectively killing our crack at...
