Apple Market Health and Wellness Fair

I've written about the Apple Market in Mississauga before; they have lots of fruits and vegetables, a meat section and so forth, but attached to them is a small health food store. I was surprised to learn that this health food store sponsors a yearly Health Fair, this being the 10th year in existence (why didn't I know about this before?!). The Fair has passed, being held on Saturday, September 12th (and I believe it's held the middle of September each year) from 11 am to 3 pm. The Fair takes over a section of the Apple Market where they normally sell plants, as well an area behind that where they put up a large tent. There were many Health vendors there, with lots of free samples and a discount of 15% on their products sold at the Apple Market. We enjoyed some free food, saw one deal that we couldn't pass up, and took home some samples and literature. It's not as elaborate or large as shows I've been to in Toronto, the booths for each vendor are fairly small and sometimes doubled up, but it is a good representation of the major Health product vendors in Canada (a large number of them are Canadian). We plan on going again next year.
