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.”


I will miss the gentle 2 block walk between the two options. it generated foot traffic and window shopping for local businesses. This split locations is crazy and solves nothing!

City Hall is entirely to blame. It is bizarre that they couldn’t see what all market goers saw, which was that the bi-market stroll was one of the best things that had happened, regarding downtown revitalization, in years. Their actions are a version of “The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg.” This is a huge, backwards step for Prince George.

I agree with both of you.

Just wondering what City Hall did to drive the Wilson Square Market out?

City Hall would not allow them to remain at the Courthouse.
