Merry Christmas from Fraberts

December 2

Tree Lighting Tonight – 7:00-7:30pm

Tonight we light our downtown Christmas Tree!  It has been decorated lovingly by the kids in the various library programs at the Fergus Library (Charlotte and Emily made a handful each in their “Wee Busy Bees” program).  The Centre Wellington Singers will be carolling and Fraberts is providing hot apple cider.  In true Fergus style, we will pipe on the lights shortly after 7pm.  Join us in front of the library!

Santa Claus Parade Tomorrow – December 3

Santa Claus is coming to town tomorrow!  Join us as the new route comes right by our store this year.  Parade starts at AO Smith at 1:30 and should be arriving along our street around 2pm.  We will be offering free soup to warm you up!

Christmas Customer Appreciation – December 16

You are invited to our Christmas Customer Appreciation night on Friday, December 16 from 5-9pm.  Free samples, hot apple cider, and maybe a sneak peak at our expansion!  All of Fergus will be alive that night with Moonlight Madness late night shopping  - join us!

Order your Fresh, Local Christmas Turkey

Two deliveries – Thursday, December 15 (order by Friday, December 9) and Wednesday, December 21 (order by Friday, December 16).  Raised on family farms in the Cambridge area, our turkeys receive rave reviews every holiday!  We can also bring in roasts, chickens, lamb, pork – you name it, we will find it for you.  Chef Derek makes a delicious tofu loaf for the vegetarians in your family.  Call 226-383-7374 and order yours today!

Gift Baskets and Gift Certificates

Fraberts can even help with your Christmas shopping – we have gift baskets ready-made or made to order – any price range or taste can be accommodated.  Fraberts gift certificates are a perfect gift for the foodie on your list.  They also make great stocking stuffers or teacher gifts.  Fraberts is also selling the “Gift of Choice” – gift cheques that can be used at most retailers in Fergus or Elora – a great way to support your community this Christmas!  Check out for more information.

Let Fraberts help you make this holiday season delicious, relaxing and enjoyable!

Chef Derek can help with any part or all of Christmas dinner so you can focus on what’s important – enjoying time with family and friends.  He can roast the turkey for you, make the gravy, stuffing, roasted veggies, mashed potatoes, or whatever else you can think of.  No turkey dinner in Fergus is complete without our famous Drunken Cranberry Sauce.

Chef Derek’s pies have become famous – order to avoid disappointment, but there will be lots on hand throughout December.  As always we have the best produce in town, a great selection of gourmet cheeses, delicious ready to heat meals, homemade soups, and lots of other gourmet goodies.

All the best this holiday season from our family to yours!

Chef Derek, Jackie, Charlotte, Emily, Connie, Chef Jay, John, Kate, Marissa, Melanie, Nicole, and Sally
