Farmers’ Market season is fast approaching and in Rimbey the market will open May 3.

Due to wet conditions at Pas Ka Poo Park, Rimbey’s Market at the Park will be held in the foyer of the arena for the first two weeks of May.

Market manager Gayle Rondeel said 2014 is the year of great possibilities and it’s already shaping up to be an exciting market. “There has been lots of interest from new vendors plus many long time favorites returning,” she said. “The old standbys are the heart and soul of the market. They are dedicated vendors. They get up and even if it looks like snow, they come with smiles on.”

New vendors this year include Rocky Mountain Meat, Peter Sharpe from Foxcover (an artist, who does stained glass and pottery), and many more.

Rondeel said Rimbey’s Market at the Park is one of the most vibrant markets in central Alberta, and hosts an average of over 30 vendors per week.

Located at Pas Ka Poo Historical Park, the market runs until Thanksgiving weekend.

On Sat., July 12 which is rodeo weekend, the market moves uptown to the Servus parking lot.

“Last year’s move was successful but there is still a few kinks to iron out,” said Rondeel, adding suggestions are always welcome.

Rimbey’s Market at the Park is an Alberta Approved Farmers Market and follows the guidelines set out by Alberta Agriculture, Alberta Farmers Market Assoc., Alberta Health Services, and the CFIA.

Information is available at http://bit.ly/RFM2014 and questions may be emailed to rimbeyfarmersmarket@hotmail.com or visit the market on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RimbeyFarmersMarket.

Rondeel encourages the public to check out the market on Saturdays at Pas Ka Park.

“It is the place to be,” she said. “We are always open for new vendors,” she added.
