Firefighters from the Moncton, NB, area battle a fire at the Green Pig Country Market in Salisbury, NB.
The market is famous for its fresh vegetables and corn maze. It is about 20 kilometers southwest of Moncton.
Salisbury Mayor Rob Campbell called the news a “sad situation” and said the market was important to the community.
“It’s huge… it’s the economic backbone of the community,” Campbell said. “They draw people from all over and tourists off the highway.”
Firefighters from Moncton, Dieppe, Riverview, Salisbury and Petitcodiac were on the scene, he said.
Campbell said he wasn’t sure when the fire started. He said he crossed the market around 7:20 pm and saw no sign of fire.
Fire officials could not be reached by Monday evening.
