Ponoka Farmers Market vendors

We often hear people speak wistfully of the ‘old days’ when there were barn dances, two room schools, elevators and people liked one another. Without a little more support the farmer’s market will be come just another relic of the past.

Dear Editor,

We often hear people speak wistfully of the ‘old days’ when there were barn dances, two room schools, elevators and people liked one another. Without a little more support the farmer’s market will be come just another relic of the past.

The Ponoka Agricultural Society is our sponsor and we appreciate this, but rent of the curling rink is breaking us and we cannot continue on with these expenses.

Do you realize that vendors from the market spend their dollars in Ponoka, buying everything from a coffee for the ride home to supplies to replenish stocks for next week’s market.

Some of us have been doing this market for a lot of seasons, some of us are new to the market but each and everyone of us is treated like a good friend and family member co-vendors.

We welcome new vendors to join us and we respectfully plead with the public to come on out and give us a try. Who knows? You just might like us and our various crafts, baking, produce, health and beauty products.

If nothing else we would welcome ideas for improving the market.

You can get a darn good cup of coffee and snack if you are looking for one and guaranteed you will see a lot of friendly faces. We do not want to disregard our regular and occasional patrons, we appreciate you and thanks for your support.
