The Jaffray-Baynes Lake Farmers’ Market opens its doors for the 22nd season on Saturday, June 16 at the Baynes Lake Community Centre. The hours for the outdoor market will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and it will be held every Saturday throughout the summer up to Labour Day weekend.
A wide variety of quality items that are either homemade, home-baked,
home-grown, or home-produced will be offered for sale at each of the 12
markets. There will be garden produce, honey, B.C. fruit, baked goods, wooden
furniture, toys, meats and sausage, garden planters, knitted items,
children’s clothes, jewelry, quilts, and many other items available at each
market. There is always something new and unique offered each Saturday.
The Baynes Lake Lions Club will also be offering a pancake breakfast
every Saturday throughout the summer from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the
Baynes Lake Hall. Plus, there are many other concessions that are open all
morning offering many goodies, or that great cup of coffee.
The Jaffray-Baynes Lake Farmers’ Market is a great place to visit and
shop with friends, neighbours, or the many visitors that come to explore
the lakes, campgrounds, and recreation of the South Country.
The market is located within minutes of the Koocanusa Marina, the
Kikomun Creek Provincial Park, and the many other marinas, and recreational
areas of the South Country.
The popular market is a fun place with great buys for every member of
the family. Happy Farmers’ Marketing!
