It’s that time of year again. The Heathsville Farmers Market at Rice’s Hotel/ Hughlett’s Tavern is back for another season. Its opening day on April 15 brought a variety of activities and treats for citizens and tourists of Northumberland County. Vendors for the market offered local meat, flowers and herbs, honey, baked goods, jewelry and homemade soaps.
The April market also included an Earth Day themed celebration. It kicked off with Run NNK’s 3rd annual 5K Road Race. Proceeds from the race will go towards establishing a local youth running program. The winners for the female division were first place Jennifer Saam with a 23:04 time, Sarah Schindler in second with a time of 26:45 and third place went to Liz Seigler with a time of 27:30. The male division first place winner was Edward Dickenson with a time of 17:42, second place winner was Gabriel Smith with a time of 22:37 and Lars Saam received third place with a time of 22:54. The race also featured a free “Tot Trot” for children under the age of five.
