Some Good Market Schedule

Change is good...some good. 4 months of SGMs under our belts so far in 2015 and the schedule for the rest of the year has been figured out! You'll find us in various locations and we're gonna have some fun!

We continue to have events in St. John's once a month at St. Thomas Church across from Coffee Matters on Military Road.

We will continue to have some events at the Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue Building on Station Road in Bay Roberts and will return to the Visitor's Information Pavilion on the Veteran's Memorial Highway in the Fall including our 2nd Annual FallPalooza in partnership with the Tourism Dept of the Town of Bay Roberts (Lois and Ron) and our favourite farmers of Roots Country Farm, Farmer Lisa and Farmer Corinne.

New to Some Good Market events...we'll have two special summer events in the town of Brigus at The Academy Hall...it's a large venue in a beautiful and historic town and we are all looking forward to it.

Some Good Market is also heading to Coley's Point at the St. John of the Evangelical Church Hall on Neck Road. We'll have a number of events here including a special Halloween event on October 31.

Some Good Market continues to support our local food banks and the Community Food Sharing Association by collecting donations of food and cash at the door...admission is free. Our goal this year is $20,000.00 and our YTD is already at $4605.35!

All events are listed on Facebook on the Some Good Market page and will be updated with who will be on hand for each event.

We invite craftspeople, musicians, food vendors and anyone who makes anything really to apply to become part of the Some Good Family...just send information about your product to somegoodmarket@gmail.com to apply and we'll go from there. We do have an application process which takes quality, originality and pricing into account.

Thanks to our patrons, vendors, communities and local halls for helping SGM grow and make a difference in the community. Spending local dollars does makes a difference to the local economy and spending time at local events makes a difference to the Community.

Some Good Year in Review 2014

Another year over...and it was some good!
In 2014, there were 34 Some Good Markets in five venues in three communities. We continued to go to town, we said farewell and thank you to Makinsons and started a great partnership in Bay Roberts.
We welcomed thousands of visitors and hosted almost 150 different craftspeople who showcased food, textiles, jewellery, sealskin, wood, paper, fibres, clay, words and more in so many creative and wonderful ways!
We held workshops and special events within our regular events.
We also partnered with the Community Food Sharing Association and local food banks in the Fall and we collected a combination of food and cash valued at $6124.30! We don't think a goal of $20,000 is out of reach for 2015 :)
I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your support in sharing a Facebook post, retweeting a tweet, telling a friend, visiting a market, buying something, giving a ride and doing anything to keep craft of all sorts alive in our province.
Here to some good goings on in 2015!

Exciting Updates from Some Good Market

Hope everyone had some good summer. Some Good Market has been making plans! We have some new venues for some upcoming events:
We would like to thank the Town of Bay Roberts for welcoming us to their town!
On September 20, we will be holding Some Good Market at Bay Roberts VIC Pavilion on the Veteran's Memorial Highway. Admission is FREE but we ask that you make a donation to the Helping Hands Foodbank (non-perishable food item or cash donation of your choice). The Root Seller from the Roots Country Farm will also be on site.
On October 4, we will be holding Some Good Market at the Red Fisherman's Shed in Bay Roberts on the Shoreline Heritage Walking Trail (French's Cove Access). Admission is FREE but we ask that you make a donation to the Helping Hands Food Bank.
Our last two events in St. John's have raised close to $1500 in cash and non-perishable food for the Community Food Sharing Association. We have partnered with them for the remainder of our events in St. John's. Help us help them keep food in people's pantries. And we will will be sharing a list soon for our Fixins Drive (which will provide all the things people need to go with the CBC Turkey Drive). It will include foil roasting pans, cranberry sauce, savoury, split peas, pudding bags and pickles.
We will be back to St. John's October 11!
Hope to see you all at Some Good Market soon :-)

Some Good News

Hello Some Good Crowd...lots of news to share about the upcoming Some Good Market Goes to Town on August 16.

First...lots of our wonderful vendors will be on hand as usual...and they have been donating a huge assortment of their wares to the door prize...and its worth more than $1000!

Second...look for our flyer in your mailbox or where you work or shop...it will have info about the event and if you bring it with you...it gets you an extra chance to win the doorprize.

And finally... because Starvation Doesn't Take a Vacation...we will be collecting foodstuffs for the Community Food Sharing Association...to fill the huge kitchen (a bus is too small) with non-perishables for local foodbanks. At 4 pm their volunteers will truck the food back to the warehouse to be weighed and valued! So exciting! Check out their website at cfsa.nf.net

Stay tuned for updates! Check out Some Good Market on Facebook and Twitter and please share share share so we can make this event #somegood for our vendors, patrons and foodbanks.

SGM is located at Canonwood Hall, St. Thomas' Church, 8 Military Road across from Coffee Matters when it goes to town about once a month.

Want to be a vendor at this or any of our scheduled events? Contact us at somegoodmarket@gmail.com for more info.
