Some local women have found a passion making and selling pottery.
Marrilynn Fluker and her sister have been doing pottery together at the Fort Saskatchewan Pottery Guild since about 1990.
She and several friends now sell their wares at the Farmers Market on Thursday afternoons.
"I just started when I wanted to do something different," she explained. "I went in and signed my name and paid my money and that was it - I got addicted."
This is Fluker's fifth year selling pottery at the Farmers Market. She and the other women at the Guild also sell their crafts at two annual sales.
The women began selling their pottery when their personal collections became too large.
"Everyone that works here is wonderfully helpful and cheerful and it gets you geared up to talk to people," said Fluker. "It's really great to meet people in the community."
While there are usually only a few ladies from the Guild helping at the Farmers Market, sometimes others come as well.
"(The ladies at the Guild) are some positive and helpful... they're willing to jump right in and tell you what glazes and what technique they use."
The profits made at the Farmers Market and other sales go towards supporting the ladies' pottery-making.
The Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce Farmers Market is open on Thursday afternoons starting at 4:30.
