The summer schedule for the annual Mountain Market kicked off on Sunday, July 5.

Continuing every Sunday throughout the summer, Fernie’s Rotary Park will see stalls lining its green grass and trees and customers lining up to get their hands on vendors’ goods.

Prominent selling points are fresh, locally grown fruit and veggies as well as food stalls and trucks like Yama 2 Go and Vietnamese spring rolls.

“Summer is almost here, and both vendors and market-goers can’t wait for the market to begin,” said Mountain Market coordinator Sandra DaCosta, “This will be our 15th year for the Mountain Market, and we are so excited for another amazing season”.

Other draws to the market are handcrafted jewelry and clothes as well as art capturing the beauty of Fernie.

This year’s Mountain Market made its initial debut during a special showing at the Fernie Canada Day event on Wednesday, July 1.

The regularly scheduled market will take place every Sunday beginning at 10 a.m. throughout the season.
