Gander Markets In The Works

The following reported on VOCM today: "Ottawa has come up with more than a $100,000 for the establishment of three new markets in Gander. The open air facilities will provide fresh farm produce, baked goods and locally made arts and crafts and will be located in the Elizabeth Drive Shopping Centre.

The federal minister of intergovernmental affairs, Peter Penashue, announced the funds, saying such open air markets bring communities together and often become part of the social, cultural and economic fabric of a region, in addition to creating business opportunities and jobs."
