4th Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market held downtown

By Rori Bennett – Junior Reporter

The municipal parking lot located in downtown Wallaceburg was packed on Saturday, August 1 between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. as locals and visitors alike, flooded the fourth Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market of the season.

Organizers say the attendance reached approximately 650 people.

Visitors had the opportunity to purchase local produce, ranging from various seasonal fruits and vegetables such as garlic, zucchini, golden beets, corn on the cob, yellow and red tomatoes and berries galore.

Attendees were also treated to homemade baked goods, honey, maple syrup, fresh cut flowers, soaps, and much more.

“This was actually our first time at the market,” Jess Snobelen, from Snobelen Farms, told the Sydenham Current.

“We attended as guests last year, and saw that it was well traveled and well attended. So we are just a starting flower farm, and I wanted to see what customers would like, and what the market would show today. We’ve sold about half of what we brought, and want to come back if the crop will allow us.”

The fifth Wallaceburg Farmer’s Market is scheduled to occur on August 15.
