The ninth annual Abbotsford Farm and Country Market kicked off Saturday under sunny skies. Abbotsford Flashmob surprised everyone with a country stomp mob. Monies raised went to support the Abbotsford Food Bank.
Crowds arrived early and seemed eager to take in the entertainment and purchase a wide variety of items from the many vendors. Formed in 2004, the market has grown into a thriving venture that has strong community support. Market Manager Bruce Fatkin says “British Columbia is fortunate enough to produce 50% of it’s own food. A major reason for this is the rich agricultural areas like Abbotford, which alone produces 25% of the half a billion dollar annual agricultural output in this province.”
