The Prince George Farmers Market-Where the locals shop!

Every Saturday morning, I make a stop at the Prince George Farmers Market!There are over 20 vendors selling everything from home baked bread, annual and perennial plants, knitted items, jewelry, deep fried bannock and doggie treats to mention a few! I purchase a cup of coffee, and bee line to the booth that sells buffalo meat. They have a little blue cooler packed with dog bones! I purchase enough for the week ahead (and they are incredibly well priced!).

I make my way over to the bread vendor where I pick up a loaf of their delicious freshly baked bread. Chances are you'll be purchasing your second-favorite loaf as they sell out early! My final weekly purchase is from the organic veggie stand where I saw for the first time what garlic really looks like (it has a very long protruding stem out of the top-who knew?).The market is perfect for people watching, and a great opportunity to catch up with friends and acquaintances! Local musicians fill the air with music creating a sense of community, and a feeling of home.

The Prince George Farmers market runs every Saturday 8:30-2pm,May-October and is located on the corner of George and Third Ave (by the court house).
