Market to wrap up

North Island Farmer’s Market will hold its final event of the season Oct. 11 at the Hyde Creek Petro-Canada.

HYDE CREEK—For its final event of the season, the North Island Farmer’s Market is putting out a call for more vendors.

The sun turned out for the penultimate market at the Hyde Creek Petro-Canada Sept. 20. Business was good, as a rush of customers in the first hour had one vendor closing down by noon.

“It’s been good,” said Neva Perrot during an afternoon lull. “Now we’re just hanging out in the sunshine.”

The final market of the season will take place on October 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., again in Hyde Creek.

“We’re hoping for more vendors for the last,” said Perrot. “We’re excited for next year’s already.”
