A sure sign of summer is when the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market opens for the season. And this year, the market just south of the Perimeter Highway will officially open on Saturday, June 1 to mark its 25th anniversary.

“It’s a carnival of fun on our opening day, with free face painting, clowning, fiddling, baby goats to visit, music, and 25th anniversary cake,” said community relations manager Marilyn Firth.

The weekly market provides fresh local veggies from area farmers, baked goods, crafts from local artisans and homegrown entertainment.

“As always, everything sold at the market is made, baked and grown right here in Manitoba, by the vendors who sell at the market.”

The market will run Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. until October 26. A scaled back version of the market will open June 5 and run every Wednesday through September 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
