The Georgetown Farmers’ Market is showing its Pride this weekend.
In honour of June being Pride Month, market vendors will be wearing Pride colours, displaying flags and showing their support in different ways.
“We are partnering on a Pride-themed market with Spoon In, one of our vendors who had the idea,” said Downtown Georgetown BIA events manager Bethany Hanman. “It’s just a colourful day to celebrate love of all forms.”
Spoon In staff is encouraging market-goers to wear their Pride colours and stop by their booth to celebrate with a Pride-themed smoothie or smoothie bowl.
The Georgetown market runs Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the downtown core with a mix of vendors that offer farm produce, culturally diverse food and products, hand-crafted jewelry, soaps, candles and more.
The Halton Hills Public Library, also located in downtown Georgetown, is marking Pride Month with a display featuring information, books, and resources for the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
The library will continue the festivities into next month when Drag Queen Storytime hosted by Fay and Fluffy returns on July 9 at 10 a.m.
The program uses traditional elements of professional performance for children to promote inclusion and diversity.
