However, officials in downtown Timmins have confirmed that farmers’ markets will continue until the Thursday before Thanksgiving.

Cindy Campbell, Executive Director of Downtown Timmins said, “We were so blessed to have had great weather every Wednesday for the urban park.

“We were able to continue our friendly COVID-19 programming and the kids enjoyed it.

“This year, we had hundreds of children to spend time with us, to do different activities.

“The Olympics was a highlight, you know, celebrating Canada during the Olympics and carnival today, the last of the summer with the little animals in the streets, it’s just amazing to see the children laugh and have fun. “

Even though downtown Timmins was unable to start the urban park during the first week of July of this year due to COVID-19, Campbell noted that the public had been very understanding and supportive.

“We’re trying to get out, we’re trying to let you know about the mainstream activities that are friendly with COVID-19, that are outdoors, that people will feel safe,” she said.

“And we were fortunate to have the cooperation of the health unit as well, guiding us to make sure everyone is safe.

“So we’re happy that we got to do it all outside, we’re glad the weather cooperated and we’re certainly very happy and grateful that the people of the city of Timmins came out to support us.
