Blackfalds market shifts
Changes are coming to the Blackfalds Farmer’s Market.
Weekly markets will be held on Thursdays instead of Mondays when they resume this spring.
They’ll also be held outdoors at the Multiplex rather than indoors, and run from 3 to 7 p.m.
Market manager Tristina Branconnier said the changes were made after customer and vendor surveys indicated Mondays weren’t good days and the market needed to be open later to accommodate the post-work crowd.
She’s also seeking vendors, including those selling fresh baked goods, local produce, B.C. fruit and ready-to-eat foods from a cart.
In addition to the weekly event from mid-May through late September, holiday markets are also held in October, November and December.
