Hey Peeps!

Easter Weekend is just around the corner and the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market is gearing up for one of its last indoor markets for the next few months…well…indoor isn’t exactly true. You see, we had so many vendors keen to join us this weekend that we will have to set up outside, too! We hope that are just as egg-cited for this weekend’s market as they are!

Let us fill you in on what you can egg-pect to enjoy on Saturday:

We will have a number of garden and flower vendors set up in and outdoors to get you ready for a rapidly approaching growing season. (Has anyone else felt like they watched daffodils and crocuses bloom in front of their very eyes this past week?) Brittany’s Flower Farm will be set up next to Planters & More outside with joyful spring wreaths and floral arrangements for the house while Planters & More will have a variety of planter boxes and handcrafted furniture for the garden.

Inside you will find many of our regular farm and food vendors including Iron Skillet, Kootenay Natural Meats, Ki Mana Acres, and William Tell. We are pleased to welcome back The Mustard and Spice Chef from Kimberley as well as Sanctuary Lavender from Wynndel (the Garlic Pesto Spread from Bernard at the Mustard & Spice Chef is a must-try!).

Local artisans will be abound at this week’s market, too! Yum and Yellow Rose Soap Co. will have handcrafted soaps and skincare products as always. You have to check out The Warping Board’s unique up cycled creations including frames, smartphone holders, and more. Elissa June Studio features a variety of original jewelry and artwork.

And of course, Easter wouldn’t be the same without a little chocolate, of which, Sweet Turtle Chocolates has you covered. Specializing in diabetic friendly chocolates and featuring a huge selection of sweet treats made with local and organic products, you won’t want to share these tasty Easter goodies with the kids. That’s where we’ve got you covered!

We will be hosting a fun Easter Egg and Scavenger Hunt at the market this Saturday for kids and adults alike! Pick up a sheet near the front entrance of the Rec Centre, follow the clues, and return your completed Scavenger Hunt for a tasty reward!
