Nice Weather Means Early Start for PG Farmers’ Market
Prince George, B.C. – An early spring means an early opening today for the outdoor Prince George Farmers’ Market.
“It’s warmed up almost two weeks early ahead of last year,” says president Philip Myatovic. “I mean for Prince George this is always a bonus.”
He expects around 12 outdoor vendors (and around two dozen indoors) will be showing their wares and says that should rise to about 60 as the season progresses.
The outdoor market is open Saturday’s from 8:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and is located on 6th Avenue behind the Keg.
Myatovic adds he isn’t too concerned vendors from the old Wilson Square site have decided to move to Pine Centre Mall.
“People can go where they feel it’s best for them I guess. I feel one market would have had better punch than two but I suppose there’s room for two.”
