Satellite Summer market returns to Bernard Avenue on July 5

Market returning to Bernard

The Kelowna Farmers' and Crafters' Market's Satellite Summer returns to Bernard Avenue on July 5.

At this year's market, social distancing and sanitization stations will be in place to correspond with the province's COVID-19 guidelines. 

And with Bernard gearing up to close to vehicle traffic for two months on Monday, organizers of the market say the street closure and the market will compliment one another.

"I think it's going to help each other and with the restaurants and the fresh produce, maybe the restaurants will pick up the fresh produce from the local farmers to use in their food at their restaurants," says market coordinator Frances Callaghan.

The City of Kelowna will be closing Bernard to expand business patios onto the street to allow for more customer capacity that would otherwise be limited by COVID-19 physical distancing guidelines. The market will be set up on Bernard between Bertram Street and St. Paul. 

"Come, shop, remember its a shop-and-go market," says Callaghan. "You're not there to gather. Just come enjoy a stroll on Bernard."

The market will include a variety of vendors including fresh local produce, crafters and bakers. 

"All these farmers and crafters, they're all small businesses and at this time it's so important to keep our dollars in the local community," says Callaghan. 

Visitors are encouraged to keep their distance and signage will be posted throughout the market to remind people. 

The market will run on Bernard every Sunday starting July 5 until Sept. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
