We always want to hear what you think, so we are answering the calls of our neighbours. You wanted more local produce; we are very excited to announce that Rideau Pines Farm (www.rideaupinesfarm.com) and Proulx Farm (www.proulxberryfarm.com) will be joining the Beechwood Market family on July 12th! As well, there has been so much love for our Bouncy Castle, it will now be returning weekly! So bring the kids down while you mingle, shop and relax for a great way to spend Saturday mornings with the family!
