Restaurant owner Kristina Stauffer hopes to grow the market over the summer and continue hosting the event.

“We have some people committed, but we definitely have more room,” Stauffer said. “I’d like to grow it, so I feel like the only way to do that is to carry on hosting it in the meantime.”

The market is ideal for all ages, and will have activities for families to enjoy. There will be face painting on site, and vintage tractors for kids to play on.

Vendors interested in the market should contact cassidycountrykitchen@gmail.com or call: 250-924-2500.
