Uptown Farmers Market On Tomorrow

It's a new concept for Uptown Saint John--a Farmer's Market in Queen Square.

The event will feature fresh food, local artisans, music and coffee.

Organizer Jody Kliffer tells CHSJ News the idea came about during a discussion about the challenges facing the south end in terms being able to buy fresh food.

He says he was already kind of thinking about it and they decided to try it and once they started the Facebook page hundreds of people joined saying it was a great idea.

The event begins tomorrow morning at 8:30am and runs until 2pm in Queen's Square.
