There are a lot of food events for October in Hamilton, which is amazing! I especially like the look of that Spooky Root and Squash soup at the Hamilton Farmers’ Market.

Stop by the Locke Street Farmers’ Market survey, they are trying to improve their market and if you live or work and hang out in the area they’d love to hear from you! (Only 6 questions).
