Red Market Barn opens for the season

            The Red Market Barn is a staple in southeast Saskatchewan. Located 2 km north of Kenosee Lake it is a popular Sunday outing, which involves food, music, and vendors promoting a wide variety of products.

            Harold and Brenda Johnson have put in a lot of work over the past five years and continue to host the ever popular Sunday outing.

            The loft of the barn this year commemorates the passing of Cheryl Winkler – she had operated Moose Mountain Recoup and Release Wildlife Rehabilitation – and used to sell feather paintings to help fund the wildlife rescue. Now, where her art was once displayed, a memorial plaque is prominently displayed. They are working to raise money in order to purchase a bench in the Moose Mountain Provincial Park in Winkler’s honour.

            The vendors at the Red Market Barn came in from different parts of Saskatchewan with a myriad of items for sale. This included handcrafted items – big and small, food items, clothing, and the Arcola Girl Guides were even selling cookies – raising funds for the upcoming year of activities.

            Unlike most May long weekends, the weather was sunny and although the wind picked up a little bit in the afternoon, it was a beautiful day to spend outside with a cold beverage seeing the unique items Saskatchewan people are making.

            The yard was full all day and even calling ahead to let Brenda know they were coming was a group from Estevan out for a tour on their motorbikes.

            The kick off to the season at the Red Market Barn was a hit.

            The barn is open June 3, June 24, and then every Sunday throughout the summer from July 1 to Sept. 2.
