The market runs every Friday from 4-7 p.m. from July 8 to Sept. 16 at Titan Park (the big green truck) in Sparwood. The board would like to acknowledge the Columbia Basin Trust, the District of Sparwood, the Sparwood District Arts & Heritage Council and The Elk Valley Thrift Shop for making Music in the Park possible this year.
