Prince Charles Public School in Verona was a busy place Saturday as the Frontenac Farmers Market combined with the School Advisory Council for a fundraiser that packed the place.
There were 38 vendors filling the hallways and library and 22 of the usual suspects from the summer market arranged in the gym.
There was even a breakfast with Santa and a mom-to-mom sale, where the community donated clothes with proceeds going back to the school and any leftovers going to the church.
“That did pretty good,” said SAC chair Alison Williams. “It’s a good fundraiser for the school and we also raised funds from table sales to vendors.”
“It was a huge group effort and the school benefits so we’ll definitely be doing it again,” said SAC treasurer Tina McHale.
Laura Simmons, who’s taking over the helm of the Frontenac Farmers Market from Debbie Harris for 2018 said “we’ve had a good turnout so far and we still have an hour to go.
“This is our last sale of 2017.”
Simmons said the first 2018 date of the market is “not certain yet but I expect it will be in mid- to late-May and continue through the end of October.
“We have a couple of new vendors coming on in 2018 and they’ll add some variety.”
