Market people are hardy people. We had a great selection of vendors at the Market last Saturday, defying the rain Market-goes are pretty tough too, and were rewarded with fresh fruits (peaches and apricots are in,) and vegetables, home-baking, beauty products, new-to-you, and down-home arts and crafts. There was even a new vendor! Welcome JOHN BROWN to the Lumby Public Market family of vendors. John brought be-u-ti-ful day lily plants for your garden. BUTTER TART UPDATE, August 27 is shaping up to be a great day for community, Lumby United Church is the first to join in the fun – there will be butter tarts at their big bar-b-que and garage sale at the church. Festival organizers are inviting all Lumby retailers to feature a butter-tart related item on that Saturday.
