Under sunny skies and with warm temperatures, the Farmers’ Market hosted by the BIA in Port Elgin was abuzz with activity on Wednesday (July 18).
With more than 30 vendors selling wares that ranged from jewellery to wood carving, jams and jellies to tie-dye clothing, there was something for everyone as people strolled through the market.
Located on Green Street, closed to traffic, the market has become a popular summer experience for both local residents and visitors. Held each Wednesday, visitors never know what they are going to find.
