Cache Creek Winter Market coming

The Cache Creek Market moves into the Community Hall for the first Saturdays of November, December, February, March and April.

The Cache Creek Market is moving indoors for the winter months.

The Cache Creek Beautification Society made the decision at its last meeting after another successful year downtown on the old Esso property.

The farmer and flea market has been operating in the same place since 2011 under the Society’s governance.

The Society’s chair, Carmen Ranta, says the decision was made  so that the vendors can have the opportunity to extend their season, and so that the public doesn’t forget about the Market when it moves back to its outdoor location in May.

The indoor Market in February will also coincide with the group’s annual Seedy Saturday.  The Society will hold its third Seedy Saturday on Feb. 6, with gardening-related speakers, vendors and activities. Last year’s event was a great success.

Next year the organizers hope to add more speakers, demonstrations and activities, as well as vendors. A schedule will be distributed as the event draws closer.

The Indoor Market will be held the first Saturday of the month in the Community Hall: Nov. 7, Dec. 5, Feb. 6, March 5 and Apr. 2, having the same hours that the outdoor market had – 9 am to 1 pm.

The Cache Creek youth group will host the concession to raise money for activities.

Admission is free for the public, but vendors are expected to pay for their tables, which will be provided. Electricity is also available if needed.

Call 250-457-9587 for more information and to reserve  tables.
