The Downtown Salmon Arm Farmers Market started the summer with a special focus on young entrepreneurs.

Located in the Ross Street Plaza parking lot, the market’s third season kicked off on Saturday morning, May 8. For the occasion, among the regular participating vendors were several youth vendors selling their homemade/handmade wares.

With COVID-19-related health and safety measures in place, the sunny Saturday morning market, which runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., was bustling with people there to shop and connect with other in the process.
