Notes From the Lumby Public Market – MOVING INDOORS – August 13, 2021

Lumby market will be set up in the curling rink building beside oval park .
A Great way for customers and vendors to stay out of the heat .

We do not like to close down our market, and we usually don’t, but this year has been an exception with the extreme heat waves, and the fires and smoke all around us. We hope that this will change soon. With the cooler weather coming, hopefully that will mean less fires and smoke which of course would mean we would be open every Saturday.

Thank You For Your Understanding. 

Last Saturday at the Market it was raining as I was setting up, but that was okay, as it wasn’t too hot and there wasn’t any smoke, by 8:30 am the rain had stopped and the sun came out.

We had a smaller market this past week, due to a lot of our vendors and customers being on Evacuation Alert. I hope that this rain has helped them, and they can now be able to come off the alert, and for those that were Evacuated, it will be great if they can now return home.

We had about 153 people coming through the market, we thank each and everyone of you as you make our day.

Have You Heard the Great News Yet? Our Famous Butter Tart Festival will be back again this September 11 2021? WOW! How exciting is that!
