Arranging the produce

Henrietta DeBruins of DeBruin’s Greenhouses arranges some locally grown fresh produce on Wednesday at the market.

The Thunder Bay Country Market was a welcome bit of normalcy on Wednesday as the city ground to a halt to help in the fight against the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The market was allowed to reopen on Saturday with a limited number of venders taking part and has been deemed an essential business.

Organizers counted 240 people come through the doors with people practising social distancing, and having access to a handwashing station as customers entered the building.

“I consider the Thunder Bay Country Market your local food hub now,” said Kim Milne, acting manager.
