A variety of local products will again be available to consumers at three winter markets which will take place starting in February in the Haut-Saint-Laurent.
These agri-food gatherings, organized by the Marché Fermier du Comté de Huntingdon, are a great opportunity to purchase a variety of fresh, unique products made by local producers and artisans.
"Here you have three unique opportunities to discover local talent and products from the area and have direct contact with the producers," remarked Ian Ward, Coordinator of the Farmers' Market.
The first winter market will take place under a Saint-Valentine's Day theme in the Saint-Chrysostome Community Centre, at 400, rang Saint-Antoine on Sunday, February 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Two other winter markets are also scheduled for March 12 at the Saint-Joseph Parish Hall in Huntingdon, 13 rue York, and April 9 at the Ormstown Recreation Centre, 87 rue Roy.
Producers who would like to participate can reserve a place by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A limited number of spaces are available free of charge for local organizations.
