Farmers market begins winding down

PEOPLE BRAVED the chill in the air to come out for the Skeena Valley Farmers Market yesterday, the third last time it's open this year.

FIVE-YEAR-OLD Ana and two-and-a-half-year-old Maia Purita help carry items for their mom at the Skeena Valley Farmers Market yesterday Oct. 15.

PEOPLE BRAVED the chill in the air to come out for the Skeena Valley Farmers Market yesterday, the third last time it’s open this year.

Most vendor booths were open with their owners bundled up against the cold.

This is the second year for the farmers market in its new location on Market Street, which stretches from Park Ave. to Davis Ave. along the north side of George Little Park.

The new location allows for more vendors and a paved street for visitors to walk along, which makes it easier to get to, and through, the market than the gravel in the old farmers market location where the new seniors housing now stands on the other side of Davis St.

Only two more weeks remain for the farmers market before it says goodbye for the year until next May.
