Kelowna satellite farmer's market starts up this weekend
The Kelowna Farmer's and Crafter's Market is expanding downtown for the season.
The market announced it will be opening a satellite location in Kerry Park starting on Father's Day, June 20.
The satellite market will run every Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the park until Sept. 13.
Social distancing protocols will be in place and masks are recommended, according to the market's Facebook post.
The weekend market will have between 25 to 30 vendors to start, but the numbers are expected to increase as there's been a lot of interest, said market organizer Frances Callaghan. The first market will also have fewer vendors so organizers can get a feel for how the setup works.
In previous years, the market was located along Bernard Avenue, but Callaghan said this location was proposed by the city so vendors can be together.
"We're still part of the downtown core and it's a nice location to be at," she said.
Produce, artisans, baked goods and more will be available at the market this weekend, she said.
