We had a great turnout at the August 28th Farmers Market. There were many out of town visitors and many vendors with produce, crafts, jewellery, baking, books, and much more. As well, the Co-op Food Store and Service Centre had many clearance items set out.
The 50/50 winning ticket was 647879 for a total of $79.00 and was won by a resident of Avonlea. There is a 50/50 draw every Saturday at the Farmer’s Market.
The Farmers Market continues to be a success this year with the increased traffic on main street being a win/win situation for vendors, shoppers and the local businesses. The weather has been quite co-operative, but if it does rain, the Farmers Market is moved indoors. As an initiative of the Pangman & District Economic Development Board, the Farmers Market will run until Saturday, October 30.th, 2010.
