The Quesnel Farmers’ Market has been connecting community members and visitors with local agricultural producers, bakers and crafters since 1988, and on any given Saturday morning, you can find a colourful mix of fruits and vegetables, preserves, baked goods and meats being sold, along with hand-crafted items such as woodworking, jewelry and knitted pieces. The 2019 market season began in May and is winding down, with a month and a half left outdoors at the Helen Dixon Centre grounds on the corner of Kinchant Street and Carson Avenue. There is still lots to look forward to at the Quesnel Farmers’ Market, including weekly live entertainment and special events. This weekend’s featured entertainer is Dougal Hines, and the next special event is Customer Appreciation Day, which will take place Saturday, Sept. 14. The Quesnel Farmers’ Market runs Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Helen Dixon Centre grounds until Oct. 12. For more information, visit
