Celebrate local farmers at the market this weekend

Last week, Agriculture Minister and Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm noted that, “the best way to show appreciation to the hardworking people who produce B.C.’s food is to shop local, year round. Not much says fresh food better than a farmers’ market.” 

Dawson Creek also has a farmers’ market, which is open on Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m at 1444 102nd Avenue. South Peace MLA Mike Bernier also thanks the region’s farmers for what they contribute, saying, “Our local farmers contribute so much to our region, working hard year after year. They have been an integral part in building our communities in the South Peace and with the fall harvest here.”
