Calling all artists and artisans

Artists and artisans are invited to display and demonstrate their work at the Farmers' Market July 9

Artists in the Market is an annual event at the Quesnel Farmers' Market.

The Quesnel Farmers’ Market would like to invite aspiring and established visual artists to display and demonstrate their craft on Saturday, July 9. Traditionally the Market has hosted this event, called “Artists at the Market” as an opportunity for additional exposure and table space is provided free of charge.

Market customers will have an occasion to see the artists in action, discuss their work, and enjoy the final product.

Works in watercolour, pastels, oils and photography have in the past been displayed.

Musical entertainment that day will be provided by Amber and Wes Bowen.

Of course, the Saturday Market is a great chance to find those fresh, early summer fruits and vegetables, from strawberries and cherries to lettuce, broccoli and baby potatoes.

It is also where home-baked breads, pies, bannock, perogies, and other ready-to-eat foods can be found. Local fish

and chicken are also available.

The Market is also a great place to find uniquely crafted jewelry, wooden bowls, fabric arts, and other artisan works.

Come see why so many people find the Market, located at the Helen Dixon School Site, the place to be on Saturday mornings.

If you would like to display and demonstrate visual art work, contact Maggie Dumais at 250-

747-8543 for further details and check out the website at
