The 2019 Quesnel Farmers’ Market is in full swing.

Held at the Helen Dixon Centre grounds at the corner of Kinchant Street and Carson Avenue, the market runs Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 12 and features a wide variety of locally-grown vegetables, meat, herbs and flowers, as well as food and baking, work by local artisans and booths that highlight community groups. Local musicians perform each week as well, and next week, Kim Kolenchuk will take the stage. Next Saturday (May 25) is also the first special event of the season, as there will be an opportunity to buy Giant Pumpkin Seedlings and start preparing for the Giant Pumpkin Weigh In on Oct. 12.
