Residents and annual visitors will see a change at their favourite summer market, Hi-Berry Farm on Hwy. 21 in Saugeen Shores.
The Charbonneau family, owners of Hi-Berry, has undertaken a new look and safety improvement to the entrance and exit to the market.
The area has long been a concern of the community as the pedestrian and cycling Rail Trail crosses the highway at the same location and, during summer months in the highly traveled tourist destination area, highway traffic has a major impact. The Provincial Department of Highways, which has jurisdiction over the section of highway and despite many entreaties by the municipality and organizations to improve safety, has not helped other than to post a small ‘pedestrian hiking’ sign.

Therefore, the Charbonneau family, after having to wait for several government approvals, has created a new entrance/exit to a new parking area to help mitigate the safety concerns between motorists and Rail Trail users.
