Farmer’s market could open in former Stanley Bridge church

It may not be much longer before fresh veggies, fruits, meat and bread, produced locally, is available at the former Stanley Bridge United Church. Progress is being made securing funding and merchants for the farmer’s market to open this summer. Once the market opens it should become a significant tourist draw during the busy summer months.dog_spuds-1024x768
The market is expected to open Thursdays at the former church. At least half a dozen producers are on board so far, with the potential for several more down the road should the venture prove to be the success members of the Stanley Bridge Memorial Society’s board of directors are anticipating. Once launched area residents and summer visitors won’t have to travel beyond Stanley Bridge to stock their shelves and fridges with top-quality, locally produced meats, veggies, fruits and breads.
