Summer’s over but Farmer’s Market still open

Every Tuesday and Friday morning, farmers and craftspeople from all around the area are still gathering at Gyro Park.

While fresh fruit is available at the Farmers’ Market in Grand Forks

Every Tuesday and Friday morning, farmers and craftspeople from all around the area are still gathering at Gyro Park, setting up their tents and pouring on a veritable feast of seasonal produce, canning, baking, teas, knitwear, handmade clothing, jewellery and arts of many varieties.

From 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., the colours, aromas and sights stop traffic, as travellers pull off the highway to take a closer look and local folk say to themselves, “Oh, right! It’s market day!”

The abundance of the Farmers’ Market will continue to be on at least until Thanksgiving, with several hardy farmers going right through with fruits and vegetables until the end of October.

September was really the peak of production for many field crops, with many varieties of fruit ripening on the trees for weeks.

Come down to the Farmers’ Market and revel in the variety and freshness of our local foods and the creativity of our artists and craftspeople.
