Market on your calendar

Winter market draws huge crowds to downtown Cranbrook.

The Winter Market held in downtown Cranbrook Saturday and Sunday

Cranbrook certainly loves a Farmer’s Market, and this past weekend’s Winter Market was no exception.

Streams of Holiday shoppers piled into the Baker St. location for the pre-Christmas sale that featured home baked goods and a variety of unique Christmas gifts.

The event was held as the Santa Clause Parade cruised through downtown Cranbrook and continued the next day.

There was nary a space to fit another market vendor this year, many of whom returned to the winter edition after much success over the summer at Rotary Park.

The Cranbrook Farmer’s Market Society is always expanding, and this year is no different. They will be holding a Mini-Market at the Tamarack Centre every weekend until Christmas with a select few vendors for those who didn’t get their fill this past weekend.

The first Mini-Market will be December 8 and 9 and they will continue every weekend with the last one on December 22 and 23. Saturday hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays the market will be open from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
