The Farmer’s Market in the County of Huntingdon is entering its 16th season. Throughout the summer season, the market will take place every Wednesday at Parc Prince-Arthur, in Huntingdon, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
According to new coordinator William Fraser, the market is on the rise.
“With the impacts of COVID, and the realization of the importance of local agriculture, there is no better time for our producers in Haut-Saint-Laurent to promote the quality of their local products”, he indicates.
The Board of Directors emphasizes that it has been increasing its efforts over the years to develop a sense of belonging throughout the Haut-Saint-Laurent. The Farmer’s Market still maintains several key partnerships, including Huntingdon 4-H Club and the Family Resource Center.
A great selection for the new season
This year the market offers a nice selection of fresh and quality produce, including organic vegetables, artisan bread and pastries, artisan wine, as well as a variety of meats and artisan products. A large selection of flowers and local cider complete the summer offer.
The Town of Huntingdon supports the Farmer’s Market by authorizing access to Dalhousie Street and Parc Prince-Arthur. A portion of it will be closed to vehicle traffic every Wednesday, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., so that the market can take place.
The Huntingdon County Farmer’s Market is a social economy non-profit organization that offers its members a direct sales opportunity and the citizens of Haut-Saint-Laurent an experience of buying local fresh produce.
