Curiosity Cruiser’s First Stop: The Hamilton Farmers’ Market

20140603_161226-2

Food, flowers, and fun; we found all three yesterday at the Hamilton Farmers’ Market!

We at the Curiosity Cruiser brought some of that fun ourselves as we unveiled the pop-up tent and curious objects on the road for the first time. 

Everybody is welcome at the shop, and we encountered people eager to learn about the city around them. Someone asked: how many pigeons are on the streets of Hamilton? And perhaps because we’re surrounded by so much (delicious) food, people wanted to inquire about it.  For example, one person asked why are some people allergic to nuts?

So what were our highlights of the day?

Badri says he was struck by how passionate people in Hamilton are about their city. Simon was inspired by the wares for sale at the market — asparagus anyone? And I got myself some delicious coffee from a local vendor — Red Hill Coffee Trade — the first of my local brews as we hit the road this summer.

Wondering where the Curiosity Shop is headed next? We’ll be at the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival this weekend. You can check out all our stops for the summer by clicking here.
