Grand opening event to cultivate community gatherings

The South Cariboo Farmers’ Market will once again kick off the season in style when it opens outside the 100 Mile Community Hall on Birch Avenue on May 8.

With live entertainment, free beef-on-a-bun and coffee, and a wide variety of vendors’ wares offered, it is shaping up to be a great grand opening celebration, says society vice-president Laura Stock.

“Come on out and see what we have to offer.”

The live music on May 8 will feature Peter Thorne of Thorne Studios/Slapback Music Productions in 108 Mile Ranch, and others.

“This is our 30th anniversary year, so it is a big year for us. We have a lot of great vendors lined up and we are planning some special events throughout the season.”

Stock adds these will include an anniversary celebration on July 3 with a huge cake and other activities still being planned.

The society is looking for entertainers to volunteer at one or more of this summer’s markets, which will preferably feature two musicians each providing 90-minute performances, she notes.

The market runs Fridays, 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., on Birch Avenue in front and on both sides of the 100 Mile Community Hall (at the Third Street corner), May through September.

Thorne is handling the music lineup this year, so call him at 250-791-5614 for more information.
