Linden Fall Fair filled with Christmas gifting ideas

Linden Fall Fair

There were so many tantalizing aromas to greet you when you walked into Dr. Elliott School gymnasium and the Linden Cultural Centre for the annual Fall Fair, hosted by Linden and District Agricultural Society. It was held this past Saturday, Nov. 4, with 80 tables and 62 separate vendors and the first ‘demonstration’ in memory.

A novel vegetable peeler was showing off its sharp attributes by peeling even a fresh tomato and shredding cabbage. The little gadget was something to root for and it would be awesome to have more demonstration-type venders in the future. There were antiques, jewellery, beauty products, arts and crafts, sewing, knitting and healthy pet treats. The children’s toques, scarves, and finger-less mittens were certainly imaginative in their designs. The aromas were popcorn and delicious food such as Borscht soup, cinnamon buns, and all flavour of pies. ‘Iced’ honey was a new product, similar to honey butter. There were mild moans and groans coming from the massage centre.

An unexpected highlight for a two-year old child was a live cockatoo, named Thumper, who easily out-talked the very talkative child.
