It was clear to all those attending or even passing by that Sparwood's first International Women's Day Market was a huge hit. With a steady stream of people attending throughout the four hour event, Greenwood Mall was filled with hustle and bustle on Saturday.

Vendors lined the walls from end to end, presenting displays and selling items any woman would love. Information was offered on fitness classes and schedules were handed out by the District of Sparwood and the Women's Fitness Society. The Sparwood Seniors’ Society was there selling plenty of homemade baking, while others presented items for sale including headbands, kitchen items, and purses. Live music from local artists also ensured the event had a great vibe from start to finish.

Vendors expressed their gratitude for the market, as it was an opportunity for local women to really have an amazing venue to showcase their talent, goods and services. All vendors were very impressed with the attendance and support from the community.
