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!
