Regina Farmers’ Market extending outdoor market season

The Regina Farmer’s Market would normally be wrapping up this weekend, but they have decided to extend their stay a little longer.

This year, the RMF’s open-air market season has been extended until Halloween.

Executive Director Holly Laird says the weather this fall has been too nice to wrap things up this early.

“We’ve had a really nice, long, warm fall, and we’ve had success with our modified outdoor markets, so we just decided to keep that going for as long as we can and hopefully right up until Halloween,” said Laird.

After the open-air markets close for the season, Laird says due to the pandemic, they won’t have indoor markets during November, but instead will shift everything online.

“That’ll be totally different for us, that’s something that we launched back in April,” said Laird. “It’s working really well, and it’s a way that we can keep connected with our customers, and that’s what we’re going to continue.”

Laird adds despite the pandemic, this year’s open-air markets were a success.

“The open-air markets, I would call them very successful, I think the folks that have been coming, the vendors are very happy, the customers are very happy with the way that we’re running the markets.”

The additional dates for the Regina Farmers’ Market are October 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st, all weather depending.
