RIVER DISTRICT FARMERS MARKET
We would like to thank everyone who came and supported the River District Farmers Market this year. This season was full of sunshine, with one ‘tropical’ wind stormy day!
From our amazing local farmers who brought the fruits (& veggies) of their labour, to our artisans and vendors who made the riverfront even more beautiful with their hand-crafted goods, to our talented musicians who serenaded us, you each made our riverfront market a warm and welcoming event each and every Saturday.
River District Community and Neighbours – Thank you for coming and supporting the market and our local vendors each week from May to October.
A very special thank you to our amazing and wonderful Market Manager, Isabelle, you went above and beyond, and we are so grateful for your work and passion for the market!
Until next year, join us for one of our indoor events or markets at River District Centre.
