As you know, the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market scheduled for March 14th was cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19. We understand that the Farmers’ Market is more than an event, it is a marketplace for farmers and producers in our area to sell their product and a venue to assist in food access and sustainability in our community.
With the current state of things a bit of an unknown, we have made the decision to cancel our indoor Market scheduled for April 11th, 2020 in favour of starting our outdoor Market season early, with the first outdoor Market of the year now scheduled to take place on April 25th in our regular spot behind the Visitor Centre.
We know that this will impact our Vendors and our customers, and are currently looking for alternative strategies to get much needed food resources from our producers to their customers.
In the meantime, should any Vendor need assistance letting the community know you are operational and willing to deliver or have product picked up, please email our Market Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with details, and we will be happy to share your information on our social media and website. Any thoughts or feedback you have for us is appreciated, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.
