It’s that time again—Spring, the traditional opening ceremonies of Prince Edward County, but 2021 looks really different.  And this year we’re missing our friends, family, neighbours and peeps from across the bridge.

Even though we’re gearing down for a quiet month or more in lockdown, we’re dreaming about summer, hoping the numbers of vaccinated Ontarians reaches a threshold that will start the trend towards reopening. 

And in the meantime, we’re exploring all the ways to keep in touch, to keep dreaming, to keep planning, to keep showing our visitors and each other what we’re working on so that the future isn’t just about being open—it’s about being awesome.

Here at the magazine, we’re busy at work on our freshly launched County Markets—building stalls for all the great local businesses, dream homes and places to stay so that we can shop the County online until we drop from the safety of our own homes. We’ve even created a new tool that lets you add your must-see and -do market stalls onto your ‘Experience List & Planner’— everything from wineries to workshops or your fave PEC bnb to your dream home! Go check it out in the top right of this page and browse the market for your fave stalls!

So for now, stay safe, take care of your body, your mind, and your spirit. Browse our County markets and dream about a bright future. And as always, be in touch. Let me know what you think of what we’ve done, what you’ve loved and what you wish you could find here, so we can start dreaming up ways to build that too.

Hang ten until then, friends!
