Talk about highs and lows!
Thank you to all the shoppers who were so respectful and accommodating of all the changes made to keep each other safe and healthy. The photo above shows how smoothly the market re-opened last week– customers and vendors wore masks, maintained physical distance & were generally thrilled to have the market re-opened.
There were nearly a hundred shoppers in the first hour.
Unfortunately, in the second hour, we had lightning strikes, high winds, flash flooding & branches come down! What a storm!
So a huge apology to any one who came to the market after the storm to shop and found it had shut down. It was simply not safe to continue in light of the weather conditions and the damage to the surrounding trees.
Here’s hoping the weather is more co-operative, as this week there’ll be lots of additional vendors returning to the market.

Unfortunately, Montgomery’s INNovators will not be selling fresh bread from the bake oven at this time. We hope to be able to begin selling fresh bread in September.

Delighted that the Montgomery market has re opened. 😀
So are we, Liz! See you this afternoon.
Wondering if the person who does knife sharpening is coming to the market this season?
That’s a great question, Louise. We’ll find out and get back to you.
Hi again, Louise. You will be able to get your knives sharpened at the Farmers’ Market starting tomorrow, September 16. It isn’t the same person, but our friends at Bee’s Universe will be able to do it for you.
When are you going to start up the bread oven again?
That’s a great question! We miss that fresh-baked bread too, and we’re eager to taste it again.
The answer is that we’ll restart the bread oven just as soon as we can do it safely. Unfortunately, we don’t have a date for that yet.
While the oven is outside, the dough preparation happens in the Inn’s commercial kitchen, which is a small, closely confined space. Even if the city’s COVID-19 protocols would permit it, we wouldn’t want to put our volunteer bakers at risk by asking them to work in those conditions.
Thank you, and thanks to all our loyal bread customers, for your understanding. We’ll be sure to let you know when we have a restart date.
Confusion: We received a pamphlet at the market saying it is possible to order on line. The address provided at localline.ca does not exist
Thanks for pointing that out, Tony, and our apologies for the confusion.
The correct link is https://www.localline.ca/montgomerys-inn-farmers-market.
All the best,
Will there be a Christmas sale this year?
There will be an indoor Farmers’ Market up until the week of Christmas, and we’ll be selling our famous, delicious fruitcakes starting soon. That’s about the extent of our Christmas activities as planned so far. If anything else develops, we’ll be sure to let you know through this site.
All the best
