Summer Market @ OL
April 22 – October 14, 2023
Paisley had a Farmer’s Market from 2003 to 2018. It shut down because farmers need to farm. We are bringing back fresh. locally grown produce and canning and we are inviting crafters into the north room, as their crafts relate to local tourism and food. We will be open Saturdays April 22 to October 14 and Wednesday to Saturday June 21 to September 2. PLUS MONDAYS of LONG WEEKENDS
Suppliers: If you have a product that you want to sell please apply here.

Come to Orchard’s Landing as we kick off the sunshine season with Earth Day Events on April 22. Every visitor will get a Free Baby Sugar Maple or Oak tree to plant as supplies allow. Many crafters and food producers will be set up in the front room. It is not likely that there will be any fresh produce at this early event. We will be open from 9-4 both days.
