With Agassiz's beautiful mountain backdrop and visible location at the new location at the museum

To market, to market we go in Agassiz

Fourth season and new location a winning combo, say organizers

The fourth season of the Agassiz Farm Fresh Market season has gotten off to a great start, say organizers.

The new location at the Agassiz- Harrison Museum parking lot has proven to be a popular stop. Depending on the market day, there are 13 full time vendors each week with a few other vendors selecting to attend just a few.

Vendors include those selling produce, baking, bread, pies, chicken, pork, fresh berries, cedar lawn furniture, jewelry, herbal remedies, flowers, artisan crafters, pet beds, and the list goes on.

Community awareness groups such as BC Hydro, Bear Aware, and 4H are also attending some markets.

The market runs every Thursday afternoon from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and will run until Sept. 12.

Each week there is a draw for four $5 gift certificates.  Tickets are available at the market, and the gift certificates can be used at any vendor during the 2013 season.

There is still room for more vendors and packages can be downloaded from www.agassizfarmersmarket.com. For more information, phone 604-796-3545.
