Calling all bargain hunters!

Stawberries, strawberries, strawberries. If you haven’t guessed it yet, the Ottawa Farmers’ Market is hosting its Strawberry Social this Sunday at Lansdowne. Pick up the freshest strawberries from local farmers. But it doesn’t stop there. more and more fresh veggies are starting to sprout out of the ground every week, and your ticket to get them in your belly is in the Glebe. The Market is at Aberdeen Square every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Artisan crafts, fruits and veggies and the most delicious lemonade are waiting for your taste buds.

Don’t go home after you’ve stocked up on goods. Instead, put on your dancing shoes and sway to the sounds of The Lyon Street Celtic Band, who is putting on a free show for the first Lansdowne Summer Art Series Sunday evening.  The music starts at 5:30 at the East Court of the Aberdeen Pavilion. The free concert series continues every Sunday with a different band each week. Click here for the entire summer lineup.

And if you’re looking for a blast from the past, then head to Horticulture Building Monday night and lace up your quad wheels for a Family Roller Disco. The event features disco tunes and lights and skate rentals. Click here for more information.

There’s lots to do this weekend, and it’s all in the Glebe.
