Kootenay Kettle Corn was one of 60 exhibitors at the Winter Market.

The Kimberley Chamber of Commerce hosted a very successful Winter Market at the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre this past Sunday.

The idea was to take advantage of the crowds in to ski at the Kimberley Alpine Resort for Alberta Family Day weekend, and take advantage they did.

Grant Sharam, Manager of the Conference Centre says that there were 60 businesses and organizations exhibiting, and a steady stream of interested people going through.

“We had great crowds,” he said. “It was very well attended.”

Given that attendance, Sharam says vendors were already asking if it would become an annual event.

“There is already interest in doing again next year,” he said. “It was organized by the Kimberley Chamber and they did a great job.”
