A tradition is back for another season.

The Vernon Farmers Market begins Thursday and will run Mondays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 30 at the Kal Tire Place parking lot.

“Discover the diversity and uniqueness of the area at one of the very best farmers markets in the region,” said Ingrid Baron, manager.

“With more than 200 local growers and artisans participating throughout the season, we offer everything from fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood, crafts, art, gourmet foods, plants, flowers, gifts, and delicious baking.”

Buskers, live entertainment and children’s activities often add to the atmosphere.

“Lively chatter and friendly faces welcome residents and visitors alike,” said Baron.  “We’re surrounded by tons of free parking so bring the whole family to experience the vibrant colours, fresh flavours, aromatic smells, and fun sounds.”
