Cache Creek Market back for a second year

The Cache Creek Farm and Flea Market starts off the year on May 5 with a seed and plant sale.

The Cache Creek Farmer and Flea Market is marking its season opening on May 5 with a plant and seed sale, free stalls for vendors, and a few other surprises.

“I think it’s going to be great,” said Judy Davison, chair of the Cache Creek Beautification Society and the driving force behind the Market.

Davison came up with the idea last Fall and, with the Village’s permission, held Markets every Saturday in the old Esso lot on Hwy 1, next to Chum’s Restaurant. Food and craft vendors and anyone who has flea market or yard sale items are all welcome.

Proceeds from the stall rental go to the Beautification Society which holds activities such as the annual community clean ups, a new  series of yard and garden lectures, the annual Garden Tour (June 23), and is entered in this year’s Communities in Bloom competition,

Anyone can show up with plants or seeds to sell on May 5. Likewise, musicians are welcome to come and play for donations.

The Market runs every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm from May 5 to mid-October.
