June 6, 2016 – Kakabeka Farmers' Market begins its third season on Saturday, June 11. The Market will operate every Saturday until Thanksgiving from 10 am to 1 pm, at Kakabeka Legion #225, located on Hwy. 11/17 just east of the village of Kakabeka Falls.
Market vendors sell locally produced fruits & vegetables, graded eggs, local cheese, inspected local meats, bread, pies and other baked goods, jams & preserves. The Market's emphasis will be on fresh, nutritious local food. Bedding plants & perennials, country crafts, woodwork and specialty items will also be featured.
"Our aim is to become a local fresh food hub," said Jacomyn Gerbrandy, Volunteer Market Manager. "Our vendors bring in everything from farm-fresh graded eggs, to local wild berry preserves, to baking made with local flour and fruit. The Market will soon have local chicken as wMell. It's very exciting!"
On Market mornings from 8:30 am, to 12 noon, a popular bacon & egg breakfast is available from
the Legion Canteen.
