Martensville Farmer’s Market Looking Forward to Another Successful Year

by Shanine Sealey

The Martensville Farmer’s Market kicked off their 2021 season on Wednesday, May 19. The market will run each Wednesday from 10am-2pm until September 29th (weather permitting) in the parking lot of the Martensville Corner Store (across from Canadian Tire).

For opening day, there was a total of 10 vendors; however, organizer Marjan Petter stated that there were a total of 14 vendors committed for the season.

“We have quite a variety of vendors this year, with many returning from last year and a couple new ones added. There will be something for everyone,” Petter said.

For the months of May and June, Great Plains College will be on site providing information about the programs and courses they have available, and for July and August, Country Style BBQ will be on site as well offering hamburgers, hotdogs and smokies.

Closer to the end of June, there will be the fruit truck and vegetables available. Other options available throughout the season include honey wine, meat products, embroidery, cinnamon spread, pottery, teas and spices, bedding plants, jewelry, bags, candles, and more.

With the majority of vendors in place, Petter stated that she would still like to see a couple more vendors come in, ideally someone with baking and someone with Saskatchewan fruits. “We do have limited space available in this location, so at most, we could have up to 16 vendors, but it would be nice to see a couple more come in. No one sells the same thing, so that is nice for people coming to the market.”

This is the second year that the Martensville Farmer’s Market is in this location, and Petter stated that last year saw much success and traffic. “We had a really good year and it was nice and busy. Hopefully it will be the same this year.”

Petter not only organizes, but is also a vendor at the market and only took over organizing since there was no one else to. “If I didn’t step up, there would be no market and I didn’t want to see that happen, but it is a lot to take on being both organizer and a vendor so if I had someone come in to help me out, or take it over in the future, that would be great.”
