This weekend, along with the usual market favourites, the Peninsula Country Market will be featuring a little extra family fun.

The market, who partnered this year with the Saanichton Village Association (SVA), will host the fourth annual Central Saanich Family Festival on Saturday, Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Saanich Fairgrounds (1528 Stelly’s X Rd.)

“The Peninsula Country Market is pleased to partner with another great non-profit Society in Central Saanich to deliver this fun family event.

“It shows what can be done when community groups work together,” explained Peninsula Country Market President Jim Townley.

“The fourth Annual Central Saanich Family Festival is an excellent way for our market to introduce local families to the great produce, specialty foods and crafts we bring to the field each week,” he added.

The festival, sponsored by Seafirst Insurance Brokers, Panorama Recreation Centre and CIBC Saanichton, will feature all the usual market goodies along with games, a bouncy castle, live bands, prizes and more.

“[There will be] games and prizes for the kids as well as Panorama will have their big inflatable obstacle course in the centre of the market,” said Martina Redman, the branch manager for CIBC Saanichton, adding that the event is free for families.
