SUMMERLAND REVIEW FILE PHOTO AT THE MARKET Vendors had an assortment of local foods, beverages and crafts at the Summerland Sunday Market last year. The markets, which will open for the season on the weekend, are now in their fourth year.

Summerland to host Sunday market

Markets on Main Street to continue weekly until early September

Two blocks of Main Street in Summerland will be closed each Sunday until early September for the Summerland Rotary Club Sunday Market.

“We’re going to have a wonderful mix of farmers, crafters, wineries, cideries and Summerland businesses,” said Laurel Burnham, organizer of the markets.

The street will be closed from Kelly Avenue to Victoria Road.

The markets will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include live musical entertainment at the Henry Avenue intersection.

“Music at the market is very important,” Burnham said. “It makes a significant contribution to the atmosphere.”

Many of the performers scheduled for this year have performed at the markets last year, Burnham said.

While many of the vendors will be at the markets each week during the season, Burnham said one-time or occasional vendors are also welcome, if they make arrangements at least 48 hours in advance.

Merchants along the street will also have their products at the markets.

“Our ultimate goal is to promote and engage the vibrancy downtown and to support our local merchants,” said Paul Barber of the Summerland Rotary Club.

In addition to the vendors, not-for profit organizations will also have tables and display booths at the markets. These include the municipality’s recycling program, the South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services, the Friends of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens and others.

The first market will be held on June 10.

For vendor information, call Burnham at 250-460-0177 or visit www.summerlandsundaymarket.ca.
