Farmers' market returns

The Penticton Farmers’ Market is set to open on Saturday, April 23, two weeks earlier than previous years.

The market, in the 100 block of Main Street, will offer a wide selection of vegetables, honey, eggs, crafts, prepared food and liquor vendors.

"The main reason we are opening early is a lot of our farmers have early produce that's ready including kale, asparagus, greens and spring veggies," said Erin Trainer, manager for the market. "And we will have all our same annual vendors coming back, as well as an eclectic mix of casual vendors and liquor vendors."

Trainer added that they have been working closely with the city and Downtown Penticton Association, to make sure the downtown revitalization construction in the 200 block isn't disruptive.

The market was also recently recognized as best in B.C. in the medium-sized category.

The award was given out by the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets.

Market hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, until the end of August.

When construction starts in the 100 block, the market will relocate to another location in the downtown area, for September and October.
