Cache Creek Market ready to open

Opening Day for the Cache Creek Farmer and Flea Market is Saturday, May 3.

Garden plants, handmade crafts, canning and baking, and a slew of flea market vendors is what you will find when the Cache Creek Market returns in May for its fourth season.

The Market is open to anyone who wants to set up a “farmer or flea”-related stall. The Market runs every Saturday from May until October, from 9 am to 1 pm and vending stalls are $5 per vendor. Opening Day, May 3, is free.

The Pony Club will be selling fused glass pendants, and Epicure will be selling spices and other products. Cache Creek and Loon Lake gardeners will be selling their hardened off vegetable plants, flowers and herbs – all grown locally. So come and get your tomato plants!

If you have something to sell, bring it to the Market on May 3 before 9 am. Bring a table and chair or just set it on the ground. Food sales must have the proper permits from Interior Health.

Or come by and have a look – but be ready to buy because there’ll be plenty to tempt you.

The Market is located on the old Esso property next to Chums Restaurant on Hwy 1. It was started to provide a venue for people in Cache Creek and the surrounding area who wanted a place to sell their locally-grown food, craft and flea market items, and being part of a group makes it easier.

The Cache Creek Market is funded and operated by the Cache Creek Beautification Society, which also sponsors the Cache Creek Communities in Bloom and the Cache Creek Garden Club.

Contact Wendy Coomber at 250-457-9587 if you have any questions about the Market.
