Co-chair Wilfred Allan says this is the tenth anniversary for the event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

“Last year Yarmouth had the largest single sale in Nova Scotia with sales of just over $31,000. 

“With new products and more folks knowing about us we hope to do even better this year,” he said.
