Vendor Market details: 

Commercial Bakers, and now Home Bakers  have the option of participating in the vendor market.  The cost of the booth space is $75.00 and is payable to the Upper Ottawa Valley Chamber of Commerce.  The vendor market participants are not restricted to providing only butter tarts for purchase but can provide a variety of their signature goodies.  The only caveat is that nothing hot is permitted amongst the offerings.

It is worthy to note that there are hockey tournaments occuring in the Pembroke area on this weekend and as such this will be a nice event for teams to participate in as part of their visit to our regional community!
