The Castlegar Farmers Market opens for the third season on Saturday, July 9. It will be open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Sept.11 at the Castlegar United Church parking lot, 809 Merry Creek Road (near the Fireside Inn).

A compelling collage of fresh fruits and vegetables, home-baked goods, plants and handicrafts will greet the visitor. The 2010 theme of: ‘Make It, Bake It, Grow It, and Raise It’ will allow a wide variety of tantalizing choices. Come check out the fruit pies and fresh bread, spicy pickles and felted slippers, water plants, herb plants, cool hats, delicious jams, woodcrafts and quilt crafts.   Belly dancing by the Mystic Dream Dancers will kickoff the Opening Day Celebration. Music and fun will highlight the 2010 Castlegar Farmers Market evocative debut.   This year’s market promises to be bigger, better and more fun. For a change of pace, the public is invited to a soaring celebration of local freshness.   Vendors as well as musicians, dancers and other entertainers are being sought.
