Abbotsford Farmers' Market
On our last market day for 2017, vendor products offered include chocolate treats, our two amazing bakers, hot sauces and marmalades and produce from Friesen Farm. Redl’s Beef is rejoining us after a 3-week absence and our North Thompson honey producer, Bootstrap Apiaries is back as well.
Message from the Board of Directors President:
Well this is it folks, the final market for 2017. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were preparing for the first market last April. They say that time flies when you are having fun and that holds true for the market. It takes work and commitment to put a market together for 36 straight weeks. We are fortunate that we have a great team of vendors, volunteers, board members and manager, all who make it fun doing it. It would be for nothing though if not supported by our community and our committed group of customers who show up Saturday mornings to shop, visit, have fun and support the market. Thank you to everyone!
Bruce (our market manager) has decided to hang up his hat at the end of this year, so we sadly say good-bye to him and thank him for his many years at the helm. The board of directors will be working over the winter preparing for opening day on the first Saturday of May 2018.
On behalf of the market team, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2018. See you then.
Ann Friesen, AFCM president
