First farmers’ market

The Quesnel Farmers’ Market opened for the season May 2, with modifications due to COVID-19

Considered an essential service, the Quesnel Farmers’ Market has officially opened for the 2020 season, although it looks quite different from what we’re used to.

As of Saturday, May 2, the Quesnel Farmers’ Market runs Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a number of changes due to COVID-19, including food-only vendors, a designated entrance and exit, a limit of 50 customers at one time on the premises, physical distancing in lineups and handwashing stations.

An online market has also been set up at localline.ca/quesnel-farmers-market to support vendors who cannot be at the physical market at this time, such as artisans.
