Thanksgiving Pottery Sale at Marlin Orchards, near Summerstown
Looking for a Thanksgiving outing? Consider a trip to Summerstown, just east of Cornwall on Hwy 2, along the St. Lawrence River. For many years now, potter Ann Marlin, of Marlin Orchards has hosted a pottery sale in the now empty greenhouses. There are 18 of us there this year, many from the Cornwall/Seaway area, and others from Montreal, Ottawa, and areas in between. Each year there are one or two new potters--always a great variety.
There are lots of pumpkins and colourful mums for sale this time of year. And of course lots and lots of apples of many varieties. Today I picked up some tulip bulbs too.
The sale begins Saturday, Oct 8 and runs through til Monday, Oct. 10. I believe the hours are 10-5 each day. More info at www.marlinorchards.com
