Love Local Manitoba holds market at Winter Club Saturday

WINNIPEG — Winnipeggers looking for signs of spring can head down to the Love Local Manitoba market this weekend.

“Get your spring on folks!” said Bessie Hatizitrifonos of Bessie’s Best, one of 20 vendors preparing for this weekend’s Love Local Manitoba market at the Winnipeg Winter Club this Saturday.

There will be live music and plenty for fresh food lovers to sample and purchase from local producers and companies.

By holding an event like this, the group is attempting to tap in on the health concious and food awareness trend.

“We just wanted to really showcase the local Manitoba talent that we have, these amazing local food products that we have right here in our province,” said Pete Fehr, owner of Gourmet Inspirations.

The event is 18+ and runs from five to nine on Saturday evening. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.

Partial proceeds will be going toward the Food Matters Manitoba initiative: Our food, our health, our culture project.
