This summer, the Fort Saskatchewan Farmers' market was a hit as always.
 
Over 80 Vendors were set up for the Farmers' Market in Legacy Park this year and thousands of people got to see some new and unique items for sale.
 
"I think it all worked well this year, we added some more spots for vendors which is welcome because we always have a wait list," said Rene Holinski, sales and events coordinator with the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.
 
There was plenty to do for all ages as Thursdays in the Fort came alive, especially when the weather cooperated.
 
"When you can go to the farmers market and have tacos, then take your kids to the bouncy castle and then go to concerts in the park, that's a pretty decent day on a Thursday," added Holinski.
 
Holinski mentioned that the majority of vendors were very happy with the season, as it was busier than previous years.
 
"I think it's just really loved and well received by the community and we really enjoy hosting it."
 
Total numbers of people who visited are not available, but certain events, such as the free hot dogs and corn on the cob roasts, sold out extremely quick.
