Dawson Creek, Farms & Markets

One of the best things about spring is the opening of the Farmers Market and this year is no exception!
Although May is a bit early to find produce, it's the best place to find fresh homemade baking, preserves and local eggs.
Along with the poppy seed cake, cinnamon buns and chocolate chip cookies, I bought a big loaf of unsliced white bread and a jar of local Saskatoon jam.
Cut a big thick slice of bread, toast it, butter it and slather it with jam... can a Sunday morning breakfast treat get any better than that?
There are lots of craftspeople that bring their wares to the market too.
The market is held in and around a big white tent on 8th Street on the corner of the Co-op Mall parking lot, and the inside of the tent is stuffed with vendors!
There is plenty of easy parking for RV's and such and along with the locals who make the market part of their weekly shopping; visitors enjoy the bounty as well.
