With Challenge Penticton happening on Aug. 24, the Penticton Farmers’ Market is being relocated.

On Aug. 23, the market is moving from its regular location in the 100-block of Main Street to Westminster Avenue and the 200-block of Martin Street.

“This year, Challenge Penticton’s finish line is in the 100 block of Main Street,” said market manager, Erin Trainer. “While the race happens Sunday, organizers need the street clear on Saturday for setup. We appreciate the support of local businesses along Martin Street during this temporary move, and are looking forward to welcoming all the Challenge Penticton athletes.”

Several liquor vendors will offer sales and samples. Official Challenge Penticton sponsors, Cannery Brewery and Therapy Vineyards, will feature “triathlon-branded” beer and wine.

Westminster Avenue between Main and Martin streets, as well as the 200-block of Martin will be closed to traffic from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Community Market, which is a separate market run by the Downtown Penticton Association, will be held in its regular location along Front and Main Streets.
