On March 17, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at the Vankleek Hill Farmers’ Market were a great success with customers and vendors getting into the spirit of the day thanks to all the green and the Irish tunes belted out by “Mr. D.”.
Jim’s homemade baked beans were provided by Jim’s Homestyle Bakery for the market fundraiser and were so popular they sold out!
Cookie decorating was a big hit as was the photo booth sponsored by The Broken Kettle Bakery & Barkery.
As one young customer said, “This is the best day ever!”

While you are here, we have a small ask.
More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop.
