Farmers' Market Video Feature

Some events are so much a part of our communities fabric that we take them for granted. If someone approached you and told you about an event that has over 60 vendors, 5000 attendees each week, and features family activities all summer long you would be flabbergasted.

Our farmers market is a great example of one of those events. It is one of the largest farmers markets in the BC Interior. I dropped by the market earlier this summer and interviewed Bob Callioux. Here's the interview and a snapshot of one of our most popular local weekly events.
