Farmers Market Rises on Pugwash Waterfront

A bright blue roof stands as testament to a new beginning for the Pugwash Farmers’ Market. Construction is well under way at the market site on Durham Street, next to the Library in the ‘Old Train Station’.

A more permanent facility, the front facing kiosks will house 24 stalls, providing protection from the elements, especially the winds off the harbour. Previously, vendors had to wrestle with the wind under pop-up tents.

The Market Coop is anxious to get started on the season. While completion of the building project is still a few weeks away, the stalwart vendors will set-up in the parking area each Saturday morning.

The new kiosks will also open other possibilities for the market site. The president of the coop says the facilities may also be used for other purposes and other days of the week. Many Burgess-Graham says the layout lends itself to fundraising efforts, displays, movie nights, or even an outdoor dance.
