WINCHESTER — Winchester Sunday Market launched its first ever “Healthy Children, Happy Families” day under blue skies, to the delight of the modest crowd in attendance, Sunday, Sept. 10 at Sweet Corner Park. People filled the grounds with lawn chairs, leaving just enough room for children to dance and play amidst the dogs lazing happily on the grass.
Vendors came with their baked goods, homemade fudge, beauty products, and a gorgeous bounty of freshly picked produce and canned preserves. Among their stalls was special guest vendor Guy Lauzon, MP, who was invited by organizers to sell his new book, “Lawbreaker to Lawmaker”.
“Mr. Lauzon’s book tells an important story about his own family’s healing journey, and today’s theme was all about family,” said market manager Ann Brady, who reported the weekly event’s best-ever attendance. “We wanted Mr. Lauzon to know we care about him as a father and a grandfather, and value that he has something important to say, quite apart from his tough day job.”
Organizers welcome people to visit the market with their families and relax with friends, and discover the variety of sights, tastes and sounds happening at Winchester Sunday Market every Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., through October.
