Can you tell us about your business?
My husband, Derek Roberts, and I own Fraberts Fresh Food, a family-run local food market specializing in local produce and meat, ready-made meals, deli counter, sandwiches and pizzas to go as well as unique gourmet food items. We also cater to events large and small. We have two daughters and live in beautiful downtown Fergus.
What do you enjoy most about living & working in Centre Wellington?
Love the small town feel – with the convenience of having everything we need here in town – and not being far from larger centres. I love that I can walk to work and walk or bike easily to anywhere in Fergus, Elora, or Belwood. I love that there are lots of great festivals and events, amazing restaurants, and great little shops. I love the vibrancy of our downtowns. I love that there are so many activities for my kids – from a terrific Mustangs girls hockey program, to the Fergus Flippers swim team, the amazing Centre Wellington Children’s Drama Club, many 4-H Clubs, and so many summer camps from Belwood Y Camp to rugby, tennis, raquets, drama, arts, outdoors etc. I love that every year we drive 5 whole minutes to Highland Pines to camp for a week as a family!
