Market announces opening date

With spring just around the corner comes the return of a Ponoka favourite – the Ponoka Farmer’s Market

The official start of the market will be May 4 at the Arena Complex. Although not all varieties of food will be available for the market due to weather, there will still be many varieties available.

The market, which will be celebrating its 35th anniversary this August, will have a plethora of new vendors as well as the old favourites.

The market will run from the beginning of May to the end of September. It will run on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

There will also be breakfast and lunch offered from Ken Merrill and Tammy Hyde. Guests of the market will be offered a variety of options for under $5.

“We make just about everything ourselves,” said Merrill. “Nothing is frozen.”

Last year, the market averaged 69 vendors per market and they are hoping to exceed that total this year with the additional vendors.
