Farmers’ market launches summer season

The Huntingdon County Farmers’ Market will start its 17th season in Prince-Arthur Park in Huntingdon on May 18, with around twenty producers and artisans lined up for a festive start to the summer.

“We are pleased to offer a selection of fresh, quality products each week, including organic vegetables, artisanal breads, pastries, cider and wine, as well as a variety of meats and handcrafted products,” says market coordinator Cynthia Roy. The market will take place every Wednesday until October 19, from 3 to 6 p.m.

In addition to reconnecting with local producers during the season launch, the market will take place in conjunction with the Haut-Saint-Laurent’s Volunteer Awards Gala in honour of the region’s dedicated volunteers. And, in a return to tradition, the Chateauguay River Rehabilitation Committee will be offering a variety of free trees to citizens.

Roy says the return of the weekly outdoor market has been eagerly awaited by locals. “Our return represents the arrival of summer and fresh local products from our Haut-Saint-Laurent producers. This first market will be exceptional,” she explains, suggesting the pairing pf the market with the Volunteer Awards Gala will make for a memorable afternoon in Huntingdon.

Producers, artisans, and those interested in providing animation during the markets are invited to contact Cynthia Roy for more information at 450-288-3159, or by email at (SR)
