Market to move indoors

This Saturday, Oct. 28, will be the last time this year the Sackville farmer’s market can be found at the Bill Johnstone Memorial Park. The market will be moving to their new indoor location, the Sackville Commons and Coworking space, for the upcoming winter months. As of Nov. 4, the market vendors will be located on 64 Main Street inside the old fire hall from the usual hours of 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays. This is the first time that the market will be in this location, less than 100 metres away from the Bill Johnstone Memorial Park. In previous winters, market vendors had been distributed throughout locations in the town, such as behind the Salvation Army parking lot and in the Bridge Street Café and Ducky’s. This new location is more central and accessible to attendees and will be able to host all vendors in one location. Notably, it allows for vendors to be indoors, while some produce vendors will remain outside in the Sackville Commons parking lot. Vendors are hoping that the relocation will encourage people to go to the market during what has traditionally been the off-season.
