Farmers’ and Community Markets 2012

Across the province markets have started already or are gearing up for another fantastic season!

Vendors are ready to ply you with freshly harvested produce, locally raised meats, heavenly baked goods, delicious prepared foods, artisan specialty products, and delightful crafts and artwork. But there’s even more to do at markets than shop, also keep an ear out for opportunities like children’s activities, educational workshops, taste testing and fund raising events.

We’d love to see what you bring home from your market trips! Share pictures on our facebook page.
