Herbfest this Sunday

The 17th Annual Ottawa Valley Midsummer Herbfest takes place this Sunday, July 29th from 9:00 a.m. til 5:00 p.m. at the Herb Garden , 3840 Old Almonte Road.  This is a big event for those interested in herbs, gardening, cooking and living a healthy lifestyle.  Interested?  Check out their website

This year's outdoor market has over 100 vendors, including many selling handcrafted items and yummy specialty foods.  There are cooking demonstrations throughout the day, along with chef cook-offs, educational talks, music and dance, tea sampling, face painting, etc.  Lots of variety in a lovely countryside setting.

This is a wonderful show to participate in (and to attend) and I'm looking forward to being part of it once again.  Following are a few photos from the outdoor market area of last year's show.
