As the summer kicks off a weekly market in Edgewater is looking to expand and hoping new vendors will want to show their goods to visitors and residents of the Columbia Valley.

One of the people who has stepped up to help with the organization of the market is Edgewater resident Tammy Tutte, who sees this as a great opportunity for vendors to get involved.

“The Valley is home to a vast amount of entrepreneurs, home-based business consultants, artisans, vegetable and fruit growers and bakers,” she said.

“We see this and want to help vendors expand by inviting them out to our community of Edgewater. We have a healthy community, busy RV resort, golf course and are close to other smaller communities. This may very well bring out a whole new range of people.”

The market will be held at the Edgewater Community Hall starting in July, and the location offers both indoor and outdoor options for space.

 

“Because we are hosting this market at the Edgewater Community Hall we have the option of being indoors or outdoors or both if it came to that,” Tutte explained.

“In the past we have had up to 21 tables inside the hall and could easily hold double that in our fenced in grounds beside the hall. So space at the moment is not an issue.”

 

This will be the first official year for the Edgewater Community Market and the organizers are all excited.

“For years the Columbia Valley has offered markets for farmers to come out and share their homegrown produce. Our market is opening the doors to everyone who has something to offer and sell. We have seen how times have changed the farmers’ markets and just want to capitalize on it with open arms by including various products and vendors alongside our famous vegetable and fruit growers,” said Tutte.

“Our market also holds an opportunity for non-profit groups needing a fundraiser. They can run the Sunday morning pancake breakfast, hold a raffle, sell baked goods. Opportunities are endless, that’s what makes this market great.”
