When folks started filling up the downtown Friday evening for July’s MarketFest, the sun was still a blazing. Blessed with fantastic weather, this months version of the popular event is sure to boast crowds near June’s record numbers.
Until 10:30 p.m. the community enjoyed a fantastic verity of products for sale including hand-made hats and shoes, locally made clothing and jewellery, and an array of body and home care products and, of course, lots of different and delicious ready to eat foods.
Friday’s musical line up included Lisa Nicole, James Lamb, Shane Philip, Brian Rosen and the WhatNow and many more.
“What better way to spend a warm summer evening than eating scrumptious fresh foods, shopping for locally made goods and listening to wonderful live music,” said organizers.
The West Kootenay EcoSociety operates MarketFest as a project to promote a relocalization of our economy and to create a meeting place for arts, culture and community networking. There will be one more MarketFest of the summer hosted in late August.
