If you missed it, the Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market opening day was a great success – thanks to all who came out. The market, operated by the Kingston Farmers’ Market Association, runs every Sunday from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm beside the Bennett Barn at York and Albert Streets until October 21st.

Also, a message from our friends at Kingston Frontenac Lennox & Addington Public Health:

Join the Conversation on the Impact of Alcohol in Kingston




To better understand the impact of alcohol in Kingston, KFL&A Public Health and its partners on the Greater Kingston Area Safe & Sober Community Alliance are providing an opportunity for people to share their stories and thoughts on alcohol in our community.  These community stories will provide a human face to this issue and will be used to begin a conversation about how we can reduce alcohol-related harm in Kingston.  Some of these stories may be incorporated into an Alcohol Report that is currently being compiled by KFL&A Public Health, and that is due to be released fall 2012. We would like to hear all sides of this issue, so all stories are welcome


Please speak to your colleagues, community partners, family, friends, etc. about submitting a story. It would be great to hear from all ages and groups including youth, parents, business owners, hospital, police, emergency service workers, etc. The link to submit stories anonymously is on the KFL&A Public Health website, and can be accessed below:
