In 1965 Lee Johnson and his brother started the Ma-Me-o Beach Market. It was a true flea market with no new items or food items allowed.
Over the years it has evolved into what it is today, a unique blend of homemade items, baking, home-grown vegetables and fruits and delicious jams. All food is prepared in commercial kitchens. There are tables full of new and used must-have items for sale too. Because of the convenience of having a commercial kitchen in the Ma-Me-O Beach Community Hall, we are able to have a concession with breakfast and snacks being served during the market hours.
On Sunday, July 22 we will be celebrating our 55th anniversary at the lake. There will be free coffee and cake, while supplies last.
Since we have vendors who were born at Ma-Me-O Beach, we will also be serving traditional rice and raisin soup and bannock. You won’t want to miss trying this special item.
There will be draws during the day and entertainment too. At this time we wish to thank all the volunteer managers that kept the market alive over the years: Lee Johnson and wife Eileen, Kim (who has passed on, last name not known), Lynn Thievin and Maurice Charest, Rob Dygas and Betty Rondeau, who still manages the market today.
From our market family to yours, we invite you and your friends to join us at the Old Towne Hall (Ma-Me-O Beach Community Hall) Pigeon Lake on Sunday, July 22 2018 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
