The Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce's Downtown Market is only open for a few more weeks.
 
The Market, which occupies 102 St. each Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., has been running since the beginning of July and will continue until the end of August.
 
"It's been lots of fun," said Cassy Taylor, market manager with the Chamber. "It's really great to bring people and see lots of families come to the heart of downtown as well as enjoy some of the local businesses on the street here."
 
The market has about 40 vendors each week, with new business owners becoming increasingly interested in setting up a booth.
 
"We do have a couple of vendors that are similar from our thursday market," Taylor explained. "But we do see a lot of new vendors and as the market continues to grow, we do see a lot of new people coming in."
 
One of the biggest challenges for the market's organizers, according to Taylor, has been the unpredictable weather.
 
"The weather is a hurdle, success-wise, but we do have lots of people coming out and lots of foot traffic on those good weather days."
 
A decision on whether the Downtown Market will continue next year will come in the fall.
