REPORTING · 12th October 2012
The sun came out for the final Community Public Market for 2012 on Sunday, October 7th. 26 Venders came out to sell their products. There were many new venders in the mix and it drew in quite a few people from the community.
Among the new venders was Jourg Jung, a wood carver from Terrace who participates in international contests. Also present were First Nations Artwork, pottery, jewelry and IPhone accessories and the food venders.
The Market will return again next year, but there will be a big change based a request from shift workers.
“We are going to be having it every Sunday,” said Elizabeth MacDonald. “The parking lot of Mountainview square is going to be the Kitimat Public Market, the central part of the square itself will be Food Venders, and the Ally in front of the food share, we’re hoping we can maybe expand to a garage sale so we don’t have people driving all over Kitimat, polluting and wasting gas and have a more centralized area for people to have garage sales.”
