The official start of summer is still a couple of weeks away, but for many the season started Thursday. That's when the Royal City farmer's market had its first outdoor market at Tipperary Park.
As usual vendors offered an assortment of fresh vegetables. There were also local artisans and producers of food products selling their wares.
Later this summer local brewers and wine makers will also be able to sell their products once changes to provincial liquor laws are finalized.
