Royal Visit Includes Stop at Wellington Farmers’ Market to Showcase Local Food and Producers.
“Premier Kathleen Wynne welcomed Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to the Wellington Farmers’ Market today, as part of their Canadian tour commemorating the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
Premier Wynne joined Their Royal Highnesses at a special Ontario150 opening of the market to meet local growers and producers and discuss the role of Ontario’s farmers and markets in our history and our future.
Now in its sixth year, the Wellington Farmers’ Market shows the contributions farmers’ markets make to their local communities and economies. The market has created good jobs for young people in the community, provided an interactive venue for local producers and vendors to showcase and sell their products, and revitalized Wellington Main Street while protecting heritage buildings.
