Another market season is nearing the end but not without saying thanks for another successful season.

The annual market has been a summer staple in Fort St. James offering the community a wide array of food and crafts for all to enjoy.

On Sept. 2, the community was invited to a Customer Appreciation Day at Spirit Square.

Hamburgers and hotdogs were served and despite the rain it was a good turnout.

Many of the vendors have been involved for years and some since the very beginning.

For Fort St. James District Councillor, Dave Birdi, it’s all about buying locally.

“The market is a great way to encourage local farmers and entrepreneurs,” Birdi said.

“It was great to see such a good turnout.”
