- Woodstock Farmers’ Market
The market opens early Saturday morning, and is filled with a bunch of goodies from our local farmers. The best place to shop for anything from milk, eggs, meat, cheese to pastries, jam and the list goes on! This is the hot spot in town every weekend and where you can find over 33 vendors.
- Local Greenhouses
We have some amazing greenhouses in the area, that offer huge selections to make your yard and garden a dream! A few of my favourites are Van Dyk’s greenhouses, Haight’s Garden Centre, Wells’ Greenhouses and Floral Express. Be sure to check them out before all the inventory is gone.
- Local Brewery with a Patio!
The weather has been amazing this last week, and the patios have been seeing a lot of action. Our local brewery has amazing events, from live music, to bike nights and a great patio to boot. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Great atmosphere with great beer.
- Trails and Adventures
We have so many amazing trails around the city. We have roth park that spans all across Pittock, and tons more all throughout Oxford County. Also, in Pittock park you can rent kayaks and canoes to experience the views from the water. So much to do with the new weather.
