The Creston Valley Farmers’ Market will be doing two markets on the Canada Day long weekend. The normal Saturday market will take place on June 30 from 8 a.m.-noon and will be a Canada Day-themed event. Face painting and children’s entertainment will be featured, so bring the whole family!

The second market will be on Canada Day from 4-8 p.m. at the Creston Community Complex in partnership with the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce. There is only a $5 stall fee for this extra event and organizers recommend food and small crafts vendors, but welcome whoever would like to participate in the family event. There is limited vendor space, so please call to reserve.

On July 7, the market is participating in a BC Association of Farmers’ Markets survey. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to learn more about the market and how it affects the community. Three or four volunteers are needed for this project.

For more information, to reserve booth space or volunteer, email cvfarmersmarket@gmail.com or call co-managers Martha and Tamara at 250-254-1594.
