The spring markets have been better than we could have expected this year with Covid-19 thrown into the mix. We have had so much great support from the community, and the volunteers have done more than their fair share!
I would like to remind everyone that tourist season is just beginning and we still need to do everything we can in order to ensure everyone’s safety.
The markets have been such a nice way to get everyone in the community outdoors, while still keeping a social distance. As per the BCCDC, we are going to continue operating a modified Farmers’ Market every week. We have additional staff and volunteers at the Market, and will be enforcing one-way foot traffic, including one entrance to and one exit from the Market, which will be monitored at all times. We also have hand washing stations at the entrance and mid-way through. We are asking the public to shop, not stop.
Vendors are being asked to wear masks and gloves during the Market, although they are optional. Please consider electronic or card payments if possible. NO SAMPLES OR TASTERS WILL BE ALLOWED AT THE MARKET.
The Market will be in our usual outdoor location, behind the Visitor Centre, and will be in operation from 9:00am-1:00pm.
Vendors at this week’s Market are:
Pretty Things for Little Girls
Treasures from the Heart
Aprons with Pizzaz
