Supporters lined up in an orderly, physically-distanced manner outdoors to take in the Williams Lake Seedy Saturday Earlybird Farmers’ Market May 1, which was forced to cancel last year due to COVID-19.
The first of its kind this year, the event, located beside Kiwanis Park, attracted more than 30 vendors offering locally grown or made products as well as information booths on living sustainably in the Cariboo.
Deb Radolla, one of the event organizers, manned the entrance, where customers donned face masks and hand-sanitized before being let in a few at a time.
Friends Connie Coreless and Pam Hedley-Smith took in Seedy Saturday together and said they were thrilled to be there.
“Happy to be out to see people, to have sunshine and plants,” said Coreless.
“New faces, and how can you go wrong with plants.”
The Williams Lake Farmer’s Market kicks off in the same location Friday, May 7.
