The City of Abbotsford has two booths in the market. They have tips and handouts dealing with water conservation and can answer questions about dealing with solid waste.
Live entertainment this week is by “Each Other” ,Sylvain & Rochelle.
Market mascot, Abbie spends market days visiting with vendors. We invite our younger customers to find Abbie, come to the Market Info tent and tell us where you think you found her. If you are right, you get to choose a gift out of Abbie’s prize trunk.
