The St. Norbert Farmers’ Market isn’t only celebrating their seasonal opening this weekend, but its 30th anniversary.
The outdoor market opens on Saturday at 8 a.m. with over 100 vendors.
Opening day festivities include the Southglen Fiddlers at 10 a.m., a welcome greeting by representatives from all three levels of government at 11 a.m., a fiddle jam at 11:30 a.m. and Norman Chief Memorial Dancers at noon. The Manitoba Youth Strings close out the entertainment at 1 p.m.
To mark the 30th year, organizers are offering the main stage to 30 different community and cultural groups over 30 Saturdays. An updated listing of talent set to perform is available at stnorbertfarmersmarket.ca/events.
“We’ll continue to bring Manitobans all that’s local, from fresh, seasonal vegetables, to delicious baked goods, to crafts and meats,” a press release from the market said.
The market runs every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. until October 6. An abbreviated and smaller market runs Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
