Downtown Fallfest to host two farmers' markets

The largest outdoor market of the year will be the centrepiece of the fledgling Downtown Fallfest this Saturday.

To run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., not will only feature the Prince George Farmer's Market at Third and Quebec, but the Wilson's Square Farmer's Market will also be back at the courthouse at Third and George.

"Our vendors are excited to be able to join this celebration of fall and make sure you have a chance take advantage of the rich and bountiful harvest this season," said Wilson Square Farmers' Market president Lawrence Hewitt. "This is a great time to stock up on all the tasty ingredients from our local farmers."

Fallfest will also include a pancake breakfast, a pop-up market and entertainment. And there will be presentations on local food, canning, electric cars and conservation.

"We have had so much fun hosting our summer and winter festivals that we jumped at the opportunity to work with enthusiastic partners to plan an event for the fall in our downtown," said Downtown Prince George executive director Colleen Van Mook.

"Building on the momentum started in 2018 with the Farmfest event, we saw an opportunity to invite the community to celebrate another great season in Prince George's downtown."

Fallfest will also coincide with the CrossRoads Street Festival on George Street from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
