Anyone who can’t wait for the Cache Creek Farmers’ Market to start up again in May should make a note of the Indoor Flea and Farmers’ Market being held at the Cache Creek Community Hall on Saturday, March 5 from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Tables are available for $10.00 each for anyone wanting to display and sell arts, crafts, baking, secondhand items, gardening items, and much more.
“Seedy Saturday” in February was the first indoor market of the year. Manager Wendy Coomber says that the event usually has 17 or so vendors, with a nice blend of homemade items and secondhand treasures. At past markets the homemade items have included fresh bannock and canning, stylish birdhouses, metal silhouettes and wind catchers, bags and wallets, freshly-made fudge, jewellery, and stained glass.
Tables will be set up and ready for the vendors by 8:00am. All the proceeds from the table rentals go to the Cache Creek Beautification Society, which operates the summer Farmers’ Market and does so much else for the Village.
Another indoor market will follow in April, and on Saturday May 7 the outdoor market opens for the summer. It runs through October 15 and takes place at the old Esso station site at the junction of Highways 1 and 97.
