With fall officially underway, the Regina Farmers market moves into the last month of outdoor markets for the 2017 season.
The farmers market, open from 9:00 until 1:00 Saturday, has been held outside on the 12th Avenue plaza since May.
Dee Kitsch is the Manager of Marketing and Customer Experience at the market. She says although the year started slow, it eventually became a great year for markets.
“The year got off to kind of a rocky start in May, ” Kitsch says. “I remember us having some iffy weather, but as the spring and summer continued we were very lucky with weather. It didn’t rain a lot as we know, it was very sunny and warm. Plenty of customers enjoyed having sunlight on the plaza for most of the summer.”
Kitsch says those attending this weekends market can expect to see a lot of variety.
“This Saturday at the market we will have lots of produce. It’s harvest time, there’s lots of variety available. You could even be thinking forward to Thanksgiving or Halloween, shopping for Pumpkin anything really, its available right now. You can also find the typical fair at the market, so like eggs, meat, honey, jams and jellies.”
On October 21st, the Farmers Market moves indoors to the Wa-Wa Shrine Centre.
The market will then be moved to Saturdays only from 9:00 to 1:00.
