The sun came out Saturday (Oct. 19) for the final outdoor Quesnel Farmers Market of the season, and while there was a smaller number of vendors at the last market, there was still a great variety of home-grown, home-made and home-baked products.

Held at the Helen Dixon Grounds at the corner of Kinchant Street and Carson Avenue, the Quesnel Farmers Market has been going weekly since May 4. Now that the outdoor season is over, many of the vendors will be part of the Quesnel Christmas Market, which will take place Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Quesnel and District Arts and Recreation Centre.
