Kitimat’s first Public Market is fast approaching. Set for Sunday May 5th, it will take place in the Doctor’s Offices Parking lot and Greenspace of Mountainview Square.
“It opens to the public at 10 am, again the same rules as last year, no dogs in the market area and we’ll have designated areas for smoking because there is a lot of food and eating with their kids and stuff. We already have venders signing up, we have registration available at the Food Share office at 540 Mountainview Square,” said Elizabeth MacDonald.
MacDonald told us she’s had calls from Terrace, Smithers and Prince Rupert. They hope to have live music for the grand re-opening of the market.
This year, they are also splitting up the fair into three sections. One for food, one for venders and one for garage sales, which is a new addition. MacDonald told us people can expect to find: “Pretty much what you’d expect to find driving around to the garage sales. People will come down and set up a table and sell whatever they’d hope to recycle in the community rather than throwing it out.”
