Farmers Market Set For May 26

MOUNT FOREST – The Wellington North Farmers Market is opening up for the season next Friday.
The Market will run every Friday afternoon from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm at the Victory Community Centre in Mount Forest on King Street East starting on May 26th. It will run until October 6th of this year.
Several local vendors will be at the market this year selling locally grown fruits and vegetables and other food from their farms. Economic Development Officer for the Township of Wellington North Dale Small says they are really excited to be offering the farmers market to local residents once again this year.
“A Farmers’ Market is a good opportunity for the community to connect. It allows us to buy from and support our local farmers and producers, thus contributing to our local economy. We are pleased to give our residents and visitors the opportunity to experience agriculture close up and hear the story of where their food came from, straight from the person that grew and prepared it.”
They do have a couple of spots open and interested vendors are asked to contact Dale Small at the Township of Wellington North.
