Farmers’ Markets move indoors for winter months

Farmers’ Markets move indoors for winter months

Saturday, November 18 was the first time this fall that the Barriere Farmers’ Market was held inside the Barrier Senior’s Center now that the weather is too cold to hold it outside. This will be the location for twice monthly Winter Farmers’ Markets from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. March 31. Although there were not as many vendors as during the previous month, those who did attend enjoyed checking out all the great products that were available while chatting with each other in the indoor comfort of the hall. If anyone wanted to pick up the ingredients for a healthy and tasty supper that evening, they could easily do so. A good choice of fall vegetables was available as well as baked goods from bread, to items for dessert. A variety of fresh meat was also there to choose from, and of special interest was the 108 Sausage Company’s variety of sausages, too many to mention here. Ron Dyck, the owner of the company, takes his business to many B.C. area markets besides Barriere and Clearwater, where he has many satisfied customers. The next Farmers’ Markets in Barriere will be on Dec. 2 and 16, which is just right to purchase missed items for Christmas without having to drive long distances on winter roads.
