Hi all!

First off, a big thanks to all the vendors and visitors who helped make last week’s Blossom Festival market such a success. It was a crazy busy weekend, and we are now looking forward to slowing things down a bit until the summer season really picks up again.

This week we welcome back a few of our newer vendors including Red Barn Farms from Wynndel with their wide selection of bedding plants and vegetables, and Elissa with Inner Sun Creations who hand-makes beautiful sterling silver and copper jewelry incorporating gemstones and leather. Kootenay Copper will also be back this week with her line of hand-made copper jewelry.

We also have a couple new vendors joining us on Saturday. Make sure you stop by Taynton Bay Spirits, a brand new craft distillery from Invermere, for a sample of there infused vodkas and ready to serve cocktails. Our local Wynnwood Cellars Winery has also returned to the market and Wynndel Craft Distillery will be back again, too.

Lastly, we are excited to host Accelerate Kootenays at this Saturday’s Market! Accelerate Kootenays is “Canada’s first community-driven, collaborative strategy to build a clean transportation network. It is a 2-year, $1.5 million initiative of the Regional Districts of East Kootenay, Central Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary with support from Columbia Basin Trust, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the Province of BC, FortisBC, BC Hydro, and Powertech Labs. The project, facilitated by the Community Energy Association, will create an electric vehicle (EV) charging station network so EV travel to and within the region is convenient and reliable.” Accelerate Kootenays will be on site at the market sharing information on their new clean transportation network and offering FREE test drives to anyone interested in trying out an electric vehicle for themselves!
