At Farmer’s Pick, we believe tradition and old-fashioned values are important. When you walk through the doors of our store you will always find friendly faces and neighbourly greetings. We’re more than simply a grocery store, we’re part of the community. Supporting the people, businesses, organizations, and churches that make Ottawa so special is something we’re passionate about.
Part of the Community for Over 25 Years
Farmer’s Pick recently sponsored the 33rd Annual Community Festival (33Ma Festa Annuale della Communità) presented by the Madonna della Risorrezione Parish on Fisher Avenue. With Fisher Avenue and Falaise Road temporarily closed for the big event, the well-known festival took place from May 25 – 27 and welcomed individuals and families from throughout Nepean and South Ottawa.
Delicious Italian Food
You can’t have a festival without food and the 33rd Annual Community Festival did not disappoint. On May 25 there was a barbecue Under the Tent where attendees enjoyed sausages, pasta, calamari, zucchini, spaghetti & meatballs, salads, pizza, and some scrumptious desserts. This was an unforgettable feast, so if you happened to miss the Festival this year, make sure to attend next year’s Festival—your stomach will thank you for it.
The 33rd Annual Community Festival had fantastic entertainment for the whole family. On the street, families watched the Circus Delights; kids and adults alike enjoyed the magic shows, bouncy castle, and other circus-themed activities. The teenagers and young adults who attended the event were treated to music by DJ Momentum, while adults enjoyed live music from the FIESTA Band. There was even a raffle draw that saw lucky winners walk away with fantastic prizes.
This was a truly memorable and positive festival for the surrounding community and we are incredibly proud to be part of this important event.
See you all next year!
“I would also like to recognize the significant contributions of the volunteers who helped make the festival such a success year after year with a strong focus on Italian culture, food, and fun.”
