Merry Christmas! :-)

 

Many Canadians have a day off work on December 25 and many spend the day with close relatives or friends. It is customary to exchange gifts, enjoy a special festive meal and, perhaps, attend a special church service.

In some Canadian families and in the United States, a mythical figure called Santa Claus brings gifts. He travels on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, enters homes via the chimney and leaves presents and candy in Christmas stockings or in a pile under the Christmas tree. In other families, individual members exchange carefully selected gifts. Popular gifts are toys, games and candy for children and clothes, music, alcohol and practical or luxury items for adults. Canadians may open their presents on Christmas Eve after a special church service or during the morning or after lunch on Christmas Day.

The original meaning of Christmas is a special church service, or mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ. The story of the Nativity, or the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. However, many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and tree, symbolizing everlasting light and life.

Gananoque Farmer’s Market – Online

 

 

** Each week, the store will “open” for ordering on Sunday at noon, and close Tuesday at 7 PM.  This allows us time to harvest, make & bake your items for Thursday’s pick-up **

WELCOME TO OUR ONLINE MARKET!         

While we’ll certainly miss seeing you in the park, catching up on local news and of course, our wonderful live music, we’re happy to be able to bring you the delicious foods you’ve come to count on every Thursday from June to October!  Feel free to browse products and learn about our vendors, then when the store opens on Sunday, shop away! and we’ll see you Thursday between 4 and 7 for pick-up, at the Thousand Islands Playhouse, on South Street.

Ordering from Gan Farmers’ Market online helps to build and support our community, and to preserve our precious agricultural land for future use.

HOW IT WORKS *PLEASE READ*

Every week at noon on Sunday, the shop will open and you’ll be able to view new products and place your order, until 7 pm Tuesday when we close the shop to allow our farmers, bakers etc. time to prepare your items.  We’re accepting payment via e-transfer, which you’ll need to send immediately after check-out in order to confirm your items. Pick-up will be Thursdays outside the Firehall Theatre – Please choose your 15 minute pick-up window!  To make it easy for you and us to know when you’re coming, please add one of the available time slots to your cart – this will appear along with the other items on your order confirmation, so you can refer to it if you happen to forget! You’ll find it at the top of the products list, on the “Shop” page.

GETTING STARTED

CUSTOMERS!  Thanks for being here.  Please, if you’re ready, Register as a Customer.  Please note, we’re not set-up for credit card payments, so please leave that blank.
