The Duncan Farmer's market will sell packaged liquor for offsite consumption starting July 19.

"...we want to assure market shoppers that the wholesome family atmosphere of our markets will not change," said Duncan Farmers' Market President Mickey Smith.

The British Columbia Liquor Control Board has stipulated that the new liquor vendors be located in a specific area at the market. Liquor sampling at the market will fall under strict BCLCB guidelines.

Seven licensed manufacturers have been authorized to sell their wares each week.

Wine makers, craft breweries and local distillers are invited to join the market and take advantage of the opportunity to reach their customers in a more central and convenient location.

For further information, contact the market's manager, Dale Letourneau at 250- 732-1723.
