The Aurora Farmers Market, A Good Luck Horseshoe Found

The Aurora Farmers Market, A Good Luck Horseshoe Found

Jun 23, 2011
When I delivered my accessibility recommendations to the Town of Aurora about two weeks ago in front of the Town Hall I noticed pained picnic tables. Happens to me all the time. Every time I find something nice to photograph, I don’t have my camera with me. However, I found them at the Town Park visiting again the Aurora Farmers Market. Such a great idea that was to paint nice art work on them. I just wonder who did them? I cannot find any reference.

Nice camera‘ – she commented when she passed by me last Saturday. This was my third encounter with Anna Kroeplin, the Chair of this year Aurora Farmers Market. During our first visit at the market at the Aurora Cultural Centre, she greeted us warmly, ‘Come in, come in, don’t be shy‘. Some how she also found my blog and commented.

On our last visit we purchased this very tasty, delicious, addictive kettle popcorn and we were back to get some more. Unfortunately, we did not hear any popping that day. May be next time, and may be we will see the chocolate dipped kettle popcorn as we suggested when asked. While I was looking around I noticed the horseshoe in the booth of one of the vendors. So cool …


Needle work can be very time consuming, but I think it is very theraputic. I did some cross stitching in the past. Need to work on attention to detail and patience – just grab a sewing needle.

Bead work, I am sure you need patience for that too.

I think I am little bit shy. Lucky me for the big lens to zoom on the booth to see more detail. I got to find out what this booth is all about – its all about Aurora. This must be David Heard host of the Step In Time,a historical walking tours of Aurora, Ontario, and I just hope it is him.

A step in time adventures sound like a lot of fun. It is on the list of things to do in the future, but not yet. It will take me a life time to explore everything in Aurora.

Thinking about popcorn the Optimist Club of Aurora offered some for Matthew on our way to the car. We visited the Optimist playground in the past many times, and now the picture of the Optimist Park name is coming together. As we were passing by the booth, my son got popcorn, and he ended up singing for the lady in the booth a song ‘hot popping popcorn …‘. We ended up buying a book which I read for Matthew when we drive places.

We have so many good cause organizations in our community and the Optimist Club is one of them, the Friend of Youth; and ‘Bringing Out the Best in Kids‘ is their slogan.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.


  1. Anna the picnic tables you mentioned were completed by local high school students. I have seen one reference that comes to mind.

    The Aurora Council Meeting of June 7th presented the awards to the high school student artists. A copy of the meeting can be found at: The presentation by Aurora’s Youth Coordinator and al round nice person Chris Catania (I used to work with Chris when I was with the town) can be found near the beginning of the meeting.

    Hope this helps.

  2. Thanks Michael, it does help.
    I want to snap more pictures of these benches, so the reference does help.

    Anna :)
