Spring brings trade show and farmers market

May 4 in Cache Creek is the first annual Spring Into Action and the opening day of the annual Farmer & Flea Market.

“There are so many creative and talented people in these communities that I wanted to have a fair in the spring where we could showcase the many local groups, and home businesses,” said Marcie Down describing the upcoming first annual Spring Into Action.

“There is so much to be involved in no matter how old or young you are! I am inspired by the creativity and artistic flare that is found in these amazing communities we work, play and live in.”

Spring Into Action is an outlet for those who would like to debut their new home businesses and hand crafted products as well as for local groups to promote outdoor activities and healthy lifestyle choices.

This event will take place at the Cache Creek Community Hall on Stage Road on May 4 from 10 am-2 pm.

Let’s celebrate Spring and all the wonderful activities, home businesses and local products in Cache Creek and Ashcroft! There will be demonstrations, entertainment, door prizes as well as a concession with all proceeds going to the Cache Creek Elementary School PAC. There will be many amazing products and local groups such as the Cactus Strippers, Scentsy, Epicure, Avon, Beauticontrol, Body by VI, Geocaching demonstration by Gold Country, Zumba by Krystal & Nicole, Sage & Sands Pony Club, Gryphon Hollow Farms, Pampered Chef, Baby Beanies by KC, Ductopia, Signature Homestyles By Katie, Melaleuca, Creations by Heather and many more!

Admission is by donation to the Food Bank.

This is also the opening day of the Farmer & Flea Market in Cache Creek. Opening Day means free tables for vendors, plant sales, draws and more!

The Market is located in the empty lot beside Chum’s and operates from 9 am – 1 pm from May 4 until just before Thanksgiving.

These are both great venues to find that unique and special Mother’s Day gift. To book a table for Spring Into Action contact Marcie Down at 250-826-6957.
