The theme for the 2017 Shelburne Market is “bringing community together”.
To do this, the committee has established three initiatives they feel are important for a happy, healthy community: 1) Community Kids 2) Community Cooks, and 3) Community Spirit.
The first Thursday of every month is Community Kids’ Day overseen by craft vendor Jade McCabe. The committee has created craft activities for the kids, attending the market with their families that involve nature, such as bird feeders and colourful garden sticks.
The second and fourth Thursdays of each month during the Market season will be Community Cooks Days, a paid event that patrons will need to book in advance. Brenda Beatty-Gray, a registered holistic nutritionist, and Chef de Cuisine will select in-season food to create a simple meal or food activity such as jam, pickles or soups and lead interactive instructional classes.
The third Thursday of each month is Community Spirit Day led by Reverend Candice Bist, the interim minister at Trinity United Church, 200 Owen Sound Street.
Four wellness professionals will focus on inner health in the sanctuary of the church during market hours: Tiffany McCabe with Art Therapy; Jill McPherson with Mindfulness; Rebecca Tomlinson with Intuitive Psychotherapy; and Louise Phillips as Yoga Instructor.
