The Morinville Farmers’ Market held their Grand Opening of the outdoor market Friday. The market ran throughout the fall and winter from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays inside the arena lobby, but will now run from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the Ray McDonald Sports Center parking lot until mid-September. The market will also run some special editions during this year’s St. Jean Baptiste Festival, running June 20-22.

The first 500 shoppers to stop by the Market Managers tent were to receive a free re-usable shopping bag as a thank you for their support of the market .Street performers sang and played music while people shopped.
