The Kapuskasing Farmers' Market saw the season come to a close on Thanksgiving Weekend.

 

Beginning during the summer and being held weekly for ten weeks, the Market saw the Circle be a busy hub of activity every Saturday morning.

 

Loyola Sylvain, Farmers Market organizer, said that this year was a success.

 

Everything went well, I just wish the season could be a bit longer,” he said. “We had around 27 to 28 vendors on the usual, and there were more customers than that by far. Every year we do better and better.”

 

With only one activity held this year, a special musical visit by Smooth Rock resident Sacha-Lee Hebert-Cadieux, Sylvain said that he hopes for more.

 

Next year one thing we want to do is have more activities because it really helps bring people out to the Circle.”


He said that they are hoping to hold a Fall Fair, but volunteers would be needed.

 

If people want to help us, we won't turn it away.”
