Farmers market opens next week

Castlegar's Craft and Farmers Market will open next Saturday, May 14.

Castlegar’s Craft and Farmers Market will open next Saturday, May 14. The market will be held each Saturday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. through October at the Station Museum, 400 – 13th Ave. in downtown Castlegar. As a reminder, sign boards will be placed on Columbia Ave. each week.

“We are very excited about this year,” said organizer Deb McIntosh. “This could be a banner year for us, but it takes a community to raise a market.”

On any given week a variety of products can be found ranging from fresh eggs, produce, honey and jams to gorgeous stained glass and pottery. Not to be missed is the ever-changing variety of delicious baked goods.

One thing McIntosh is excited about this year is the addition of Glade Organics and their locally grown produce to the market lineup.

The market is open to a variety of vendors including farmers, artisans, crafters, bakers and home based businesses. You don’t need to have an official business to participate. “If you have plants you want to get rid of in your yard, split them up, bring them down and grab a table,” said McIntosh. “Make it an event. It is a lot of fun, you meet a lot of people and the more the merrier.”

The cost for vendors is only $10 per week. Vendors must bring their own table and tent if they need one. To sign up as a vendor you can call 250-365-6440 or go through the Castlegar Craft and Farmers Market Facebook page.

While you are at the market you can also visit the museum, which is now open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
