Farmers to hit the road

The North Island Farmer’s Market will visit several areas and festivals across the North Island throughout the summer.

HYDE CREEK—The North Island Farmer’s Market kicks off its 2014 season this weekend in its usual location. But the market will be a bit of a touring production, visiting several areas and festivals across the North Island throughout the summer.

The farmer’s market takes place Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Hyde Creek Petro Canada Station. Additional markets are scheduled in Hyde Creek on alternating weekends in May and June, but the market is tentatively set to visit the Port McNeill waterfront July 5 and will appear at Port Hardy’s Filomi Days Celebration July 19-20, at the Telegraph Cove Craft Fair Aug. 2, at Port McNeill’s OrcaFest Aug. 16, at Sointula’s Salmon Days Aug. 23 and at the Fall Fair in Port Hardy Sept. 6-7 before wrapping up back in Hyde Creek Sept. 20 and at the final market, Oct. 11.

Table spots remain available this weekend. While organizers admit a limited amount of home-grown produce may be available this early in the spring, the market is open to all home-grown, homemade or handmade products, including baking, crafts and even art and books.

Space is available for just $5 per table; vendors must supply their own tables, canopies, etc., as needed.

To reserve your spot or for more information, contact Neva Perrot at 250-956-2527, email pmfarmersmarket@gmail.com or visit the North Island Farmer’s Market Facebook page.
