People who miss the summer Matiowski Farmer’s Market Wednesdays got a fix to tide them over the winter weather this past weekend.
A Matiowski speciality market was held at the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre on Saturday, Feb. 10 with many of the local vendors, plus a food truck outside.
Matiowski Farmer’s Market and city special events coordinator Helena Devins said that although there wasn’t as many people as there was at the December winter market, it was still a good turnout.
