Farmers’ Market and Birds of Mille-Isles Conference

The first Farmers’ market of Mille-Isles was held on June 30th and was quite a success. Citizens of Mille-Isles had the opportunity to discover five of Mille-Isles’ local producers: honey and maple syrup from Miel-O-Max, vegetables from Les Jardins de Mille-Isles, edible flowers from Champ-floral, baking flower by Le Paysan Meunier as well as beeswax candles and honey produced by Les Abeilles de la colline. The market was followed by a well attended conference by ornithologist Martin Picard, director of Développement ornithologique Argenteuil, titled ‘’Birds of Mille-Isles, rare and threatened species’’.  The Strong Hall was filled almost to capacity! Many thanks to Vladimir, Mijanou Dubuc, Mathieu Madison, the Ancions (father and daughter), Stephen Côté, Laura, Mr. Picard, Maxime and Éveline for making this a memorable day despite the occasional heavy showers.

Upcoming market date: Sunday, July 14th at 10 A.M. Preceded by a walk and talk on the history of Mille-Isles by local resident Mrs. Ginette Mayer.
