More Weekend Plans
▪️ It’s Christmas in July at the Outdoor Artisans Market this Sunday, July 25th. Head to the Sears parking lot at St. Laurent Shopping Centre from 10:00am to 3:00pm and get a very early start on your Christmas gift and decor shopping. You’ll find vendors selling everything from stocking stuffers (we’re loving the Tubby Tabby Candy Cane soap) to tree decorations and Christmas cards.
▪️The World Press Photo Exhibition 2021 is a collection of 159 of the best images by photojournalists, as selected by an independent jury from nearly 75,000 submitted images. Ottawans can view the exhibition at the Canadian War Museum from today until August 15th. Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 for seniors, $13 for students 13 to 17 years old, and $11 for youth 8 to 12 years old (however, due to graphic content children should be accompanied by adults). Access to The World Press Photo Exhibition is included with general admission to the museum.
▪️If lounging around at campfire is in your weekend plans, head to Strawberry Blonde Bakery for a locally made S’mores Kit. The kits contain enough graham crackers, dark chocolate, and Dandies marshmallows to construct six s’mores. Even better: the kits are vegan, gluten free, nut free and kosher. $15.
▪️The new Elgin Street Market, a collaboration of the Beechwood Market and the Centretown Community Association, will run each Sunday from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Boushey Square, 211-A Waverley St. Expect boozy products from Dairy Distillery and Bicycle Craft Brewery, local produce, bread from Nat’s Bread Company, and handcrafted items.
▪️Deal of the day: Get 20% off regular prices as well as free shipping Canada wide at Lofttan Indigenous Made jewellery, but only until Sunday. Use the code SUMMER20. We love the chainwear and faux leather necklaces (that’s a hint for Darren – ed).
▪️Visit the new Terrasse Îlot. 30 food and drinks stalls have taken over the top floor of an old parkade in Old Hull. Reservations are required for COVID-19 reasons.
We'll see you Monday – Martha and Darren
