▪️Just this morning we heard about The Fallowfield Friday Night Market, taking place today from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at the Fallowfield Garage 5361 Old Richmond Road, Nepean K2R 1G4. We haven’t been able to find out much more than that, other than there will be Mexican and Haitian food. If you go, please report back to us as we can’t make it tonight.
+ Related: Check out our new Farmers Market map. No matter where you find yourself in Ottawa or the surrounding rural areas this weekend, there’s a farmers’ market near you selling fresh local produce and crafts.
▪️It’s the final weekend to celebrate Capital Pride. Head to Lansdowne Park this Sunday August 29th for festivities including drag performers, artists, DJs, and bands. You’ll be fed and watered in the beer garden by participating food trucks. 3:00pm to 10:00pm. Tickets are free but donations are encouraged.
▪️We hate to say it, but it’s feeling a tiny bit autumn-y outside today. It’s the time of year when we begin to turn our gaze inward again, to our surroundings, and ask ourselves “Why don’t we have more plants?” The answer in the ottawan’s case is that we don’t know which plants are safe to have around our two cats, aka “The Mighty Cat Army” (or “The Jerks” if they’re being especially naughty). Luckily, Flowers Talk Tivoli has just restocked their impressive selection of plants and, even better, they’ve got a handy list of varieties that are safe to have around our fur babies.
▪️613Flea returns to Lansdowne Park tomorrow (Saturday August 28th, 9:00am to 3:00pm), where more than 80 vendors will be offering their vintage and homegrown wares. The event happens rain or shine, and masks are mandatory. 1015 Bank Street, Ottawa
▪️ByWard Market welcomes the Carivibe Pop-up tomorrow and Sunday (August 28th and 29th), with a blazing line-up of Caribbean music, food, and items from Black-owned businesses. Catch the action from 12 noon to 9:00pm at the ByWard Market, William and York streets. It’s free to attend.
