The response from the community was really positive at the Oshawa Centre Farmers Market.  We had a couple of musicians, Dani Crosby is so amazing to work with and organizing these days for the artists. and upcycle queen Lianne.

Lots of friends stopped by for support and visitors to the Oshawa Centre Farmers Market was really thrilled to see the handmade products and meet the people who made them.  The overall agreement was that buyers wanted to see more and happy that there was local artists at the Market.

The entertainment was good too.
