New additions added to the Farmer’s Day of Appreciation

Farmer’s Market Manager, Margie Unruh explained how the traditional corn roasting vendors unfortunately had all their produce frozen, and therefore, the market is taking a new approach to this year’s event.

“We are doing free horse rides, horse and buggy rides, and we’re having a cake obviously, a craft table for the young kids, and also a face painting table.” Unruh said, adding that NEAT will also be hosting a canning demo.

Unruh says the farmer’s market has nearly doubled its attendees, attributing the possibility of it being a result of the change in location, and goes on to say she looks forward to seeing members of the community come out to show their support and appreciation.

“It’s just awesome,” Unruh said of the bi-annual event. “(It) seems to just attract more of the local customers coming in and gives them something to do.”

The event, which is being held at the Fort St. John Curling Ring, running 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday Sept. 26, is completely free to attend.
