Notes From the Lumby Public Market – July 23, 2021

 The Market had been closed this Saturday due to a special air quality statement that had gone out in the later evening of Friday July 16 2021, it had also been closed down due to the fact that parts of Mable Lake Road was under an Evacuation Alert also on Friday night. Yet by the time Saturday rolled around the air quality was fine, and it wasn’t too hot, but by then it was too late to open the market.

Sorry for any inconvenience the closure caused the vendors and the patrons.

We will be reopening again Saturday July 24 2021. 

Please Note that the directors of the Lumby and District Public Market have agreed that because this year is hotter than usual, with a lot of fires , if the air quality is bad, and the the weather stations, and or the news channels advise people not to go outside the market will be closed for the day. If the temperature is 35 degrees celsius or above the market will be closed for the day. This helps to protect our vendors from getting Heat or Sun Stroke, as they are out in the sun for four or five hours.

We have a lot of vendors, Charlotte the popcorn lady will be there, as well as Watkins, Fifth Avenue Jewelry, Garth with his Barnwood Creations, Tupperware, Epicure, Gel Moment Nail Polish, Homemade Jams, Plants, Photography, Jewelry of all kinds, Bannack, Pies, Music, Teas, Wood work, Essential Oils, Books, Fruit, vegetables, Victorian Lace, Monashee Arts Council, etc.
