Van Alphen is considering some changes to the markets for this year.

One of the changes is a consignment area for those who have items to sell but are not able to be present during the time of the markets.

Van Alphen is also considering having service organizations making breakfasts for people at the markets.

A children’s section, where children can sell their produce or crafts, is also being considered.

Those interested in participating at the markets this year are asked to contact Van Alphen by email at or by telephone at 250-486-3488.
