Need an excuse to avoid yard work this weekend?
The Regina Farmers’ Market is back outside starting Saturday morning.
Holly Laird, the market’s operations manager, said there are a number of new vendors expected to make their debut — including one with Hungarian chimney cake pastries, which is one of her favourites.
“They put it on a rod, then they cook it over charcoal and the result is this treat that you unwind and eat — it’s just this caramelized, sugary goodness,” Laird explained.
She said there will also be performances from various Mosaic festival pavilions every Saturday this month.
“There will be different kinds of dancing and entertainment on the plaza stage, so I think it’ll bring a really special vibe to the first market as well,” Laird said, adding shows are scheduled for every hour starting at 10 a.m.
In addition to spending time outdoors with friends and family, she noted the market’s also a great place to support small, local businesses.
“It’s a really good way to be part of the local food movement and be face-to-face with the person who is producing your food. It’s just a really good feeling of connection.”
The Regina Farmers’ Market takes over City Square Plaza on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 6.
