There is still time to check out the sale items at the winter farmers market with two more dates set

There’s still time to take advantage of the winter farmers’ market being held at the Ponoka Legion.

The last two markets are set for today and tomorrow, Thursday, Dec. 10 at the Legion, says organizer Donna Merrill. There is quite a bit more giftware during the winter market as vendors and crafters look to entice holiday shoppers to their products, she said.

Folks love the baking items available, too, she added. There is something special about the holiday crafts.

“There’s a lot of TLC (Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes) into homemade crafts. There’s a lot of unique ideas,” she explained.

Those good ideas translate into ideal holiday gifts and the Legion has been full of shoppers looking for that one gift they can’t get anywhere else. In an effort to reach out to the community, the farmers’ market hosts a 50/50 to raise funds for different community groups.

Last month the focus was for the Community Christmas and this month the market is raising money for the Ponoka Food Bank.

Shoppers looking for something different can check out the Legion from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today or 3 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 10.
