WS Farmers Market Adds New Component

Sunday, June 26, 2016 @ 6:58 AM

Prince George, B.C. – The Wilson Square Farmers Market which   sets up every Saturday  at the Pine Centre Mall,   will now  offer the market experience on Sundays at CNC.

“We’ve got a lot  of people who work on Saturdays  so we just thought we  would give people more of an option  with Sundays as well” says WS Farmers Market  President Maria Pennock.

Starting today,   the market will set up  in the parking lot  in front of the John Brink Building.  Pennock says  the Sunday market will offer  the regular fare,  plus an educational component “We are  working with the College of New Caledonia, doing educational things with them. They’re going to have  some of their students come out,  they’ll be doing tours in September to show the  facilities.  We’ll be doing more  things like how to plant classes,  jam making classes, a whole  bunch  of  activities that are sort of community  oriented but also  around the college.”

Pennock says the  Sunday site  will provide them with a little more  flexibility to do events.

“What we liked about this ( Sunday set up) is  if there are  vendors coming in out of town,   it’s more worth their while to do two markets in Prince George instead of just one.  So if they are travelling all the way to Prince George,  it’s nice to do two different  venues” says Pennock  “I think we will get a whole different clientele as well,  Sunday is kind of a family day  so  we’ve got more of a laid back kind of day on Sunday.”

Both the Saturday market at the Pine Centre Mall and the Sunday  market at CNC will run through to  Thanksgiving.



what are the hours of operation at both locations please
