Vendors needed for revamped market in Agassiz

New location and entertainment for Agassiz Farm Fresh Market

This year's Farm Fresh Market in Agassiz has a new location

The Agassiz Farm Fresh Market season will soon be starting and it looks like it is shaping up to be a successful one.

This will be the fourth year of the market and new this season will be the location.   The parking lot of the Agassiz – Harrison Museum will host the market every Thursday afternoon, starting June 6. The new location should prove to be a busy one with all the vehicles passing through, says Judy Pickard from the Agassiz Visitor Info Centre and Museum.

The market runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. to until Sept. 12. Canada Day, (July 1) and the Agassiz Fall Fair will also host markets. Also this season will be a few late evening markets that will be held in conjunction with the District of Kent’s Pioneer Park Twilight Concert Series evenings. Those nights are July 18, Aug. 1, and Aug. 15, making Thursdays in Pioneer Park this summer a time of shopping, entertainment, and socializing.

The market will continue to follow the philosophy of “Make it, Bake it, Grow it” and welcomes and encourages all locals to join in either as a vendor or as a shopper. Vendors can either come for the whole season or pick various days to attend.   Vendor’s packages can be download off their website, www.agassizfarmersmarket.com, or by phoning Judy, market coordinator, at 604-796-3545 for delivery of a vendor package.
