The Creston Valley Farmers’ Market kicks of its summer and fall season at its location adjacent to the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce this Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Market manager Jen Comer, who returns after an absence to have a baby, said vendor interest is stronger than ever.

“We are expecting about 25 vendors throughout May, which is higher than last year,” she said. “Our goal this summer is to get to 50 vendors.”

Visitors to the popular market can expect a wide variety of produce and crafts, all made or grown in the Kootenays. Farmers markets have soared in popularity in recent years as consumers demand increased opportunities to meet and talk to food producers.
