While the cold wind and looming showers brought the event indoors instead of out in the yard, the first-ever Market on the Farm drew a crowd from the Weyburn area on Saturday, with upwards of 400 people attending to check it out.

Hosted by the Bjorn family, more than a dozen vendors were taking part in what will be the first of a summer-long farmer's market event, just minutes outside of Weyburn off of Highway 39.

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday and made it such an incredible event," said Alissa Bjorn, the organizer and host. 

"It's all a bit of a blur because it was just so full of life and joy and excitement, and I loved seeing people coming for the shopping of the market and staying for the community and conversation."

Music was provided by Aaron and Family, with his daughter, well-known musician and singer-songwriter Micah Walbaum, and his wife Jacquie Walbaum, a member of the Sirens Dueling Pianos.

"Their live music was incredible."

"The barbecue was delicious and it was just fun to see the community gather together laughing and having fun," she commented.

Bjorn said the next Market on the Farm will be held on June 29th.

"So mark your calendars. We are excited to expand it, hopefully being outside and we are still open for vendors, so if you or someone you know and love would love to be a local vendor, we would be excited to do that. Feel free to connect with me on Facebook or at 250-320-6224."

"We are just so excited to see this grow and really be a place where we can serve Weyburn and the local community." 

The next event will be held on June 29th. Read more below in the related article link.
