Ottawa farmers’ market goes on through pandemic

Story by Michael McKenna

The Old Town Ottawa Farmer’s Market has stayed in operation despite the Pandemic. The Market plans to be open through at least the middle of October. Jeff Hettrick of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce says:

Ottawa has a long tradition of running a Farmers Market. Local honey and soap can be purchased as well as home baked goods, jams and jellies, dog treats, handmade soaps and fresh roasted coffee to go with the donuts. The Market motto is: They GROW it. They BAKE it. They SELL it. FRESH! Their mission statement is to promote, preserve and support the market as a source of healthy, locally-grown and produced foods and goods.
