A couple of key venues for buying local foods and products are ready to wrap it up for the season.

Wednesday will be the last day for the Downtown Market in Red Deer, held in the parking lot at Little Gaetz Avenue and 48th Street and running from 4 to 7 p.m.

The Red Deer Public Market will wrap up its 42nd season on Saturday, running from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Red Deer Arena parking lot, directly east of the Lodge Hotel.

Janice Shimek, promotions director for the Red Deer Downtown Business Association, said closing of the Wednesday market was timed to give people an opportunity to shop for their Thanksgiving dinners.

Vendors at both markets will have an abundance of fall produce on hand, including pumpkins and other squashes, fresh meat and plenty of baked goods.
