The brainchild of Stephanie Newman, who operates the Cheesecakery Bakery on the property, Homegrown in Frontenac is a celebration of all of the wild and wonderful artisan businesses that have sprung up within the vicinity of her home on the Forest Road in South Frontenac (3005 Forest Road – Off Murton Road if you are coming from Hwy 38 or off Stagecoach Road if you are coming from Sydenham) In addition to the 30 or so vendors who will be on hand to show off a wide range of products, there will be food to eat on site or take home, the Sydenham band Still Standing will be performing, there will be a bouncey castle for the kids, and Spearhead Brewing (a recent transplant to the region that saw the light and moved to the region from Toronto) as well as Perth’s Top Shelf Distillery will be on hand.
