We’re very pleased to have Christine Kendal-Ward as our featured performer, and we are looking forward to the arrival of another new vendor. This lady will be offering organic skincare products. It will be a nice complement to vendors selling other organic products: vegetables, plants, fruits and berries in season, herbal and “true” teas, breads, eggs and more. See you on Saturday 9am-1pm, Whitevalley Community Park Oval, Lumby.
Our Market is thriving! Every Saturday new vendors join us, increasing our variety and the shopping opportunities for Lumby and area folks. This week we welcomed Bonnie with intriguing new-to-you items and collectibles; Tiffany the AVON lady; Debbra who creates all kinds of kids masks and ear Barrettes as well as PavErpol figurines; and Cathy selling mystical garden gnomes.
This week, our usual Market won’t be in the Park, but I and a number of our Market vendors will be at Lumby Days, so drop by and say hello. We’ll be back on June 18th; mark it on your calendar because Christine Kendal-Ward will be singing at the Market. Christine is a well-known local star, and everyone loves her voice. Sincere thanks to the Monashee Arts Council for their support in providing talented local artists who perform every second week at the Lumby Public Market. Up-and-coming star? No place to play your guitar? You’re welcome to come out and busk at the Saturday Market.
See you in the Park at our usual spot on June 18th Whitevalley Community Park Oval, Glencaird & Norris
Saturdays, the Market is a great place to buy plants and tools for your home and garden, vegetables for your table and cookies for the cookie jar. Last week, we welcomed
newcomer Sasha with her lovely jewelry and winning smile. This diversity highlights the role of a Public Market, in addition to welcoming
vendors with locally-made, farm grown, or home-baked products, we also welcome small businesses, local entrepreneurs, home-based businesses, and area artisans and crafters who
display and sell their products. In other words, the Lumby Public Market is a Community Market – open to pretty well all local vendors, and to vendors from all over the BC
interior. People like Ron and Eric, who every week bring you good used items, books and collectibles, and Sylvester who specializes in collector coins and a few treasures found in his travels.
The Lumby Public Market is a meeting place for the community. Each Saturday, folks come to see what’s on offer from the vendors, meet friends, and have lunch or a snack while relaxing in the park.
Kids can play safely within eyesight at the playground and spray park.
