Winter Market coming to Kimberley

Saturdays and Sundays through the Christmas season at the Mark Creek Mall

When Allison Walker purchased the Mark Creek Mall building earlier this year, she said she was open to anything in terms of using the space. After some discussion with the Chamber of Commerce, it has been decided to offer a Winter Market at the mall beginning November 23. The Market will run through the Christmas season, each Saturday and Sunday, until January 5.

“We want to try to capture the first influx of tourists and go right through to January,” said Chamber Manager Mike Guarnery. “After that, we’ll see.”

The Winter Market is open to artisans, and people who have items they might like to sell for Christmas.

The space formerly used by the Field’s Store will be divided to host up to 30 businesses and artisans to sell items each weekend from 10:00am to 5:00 p.m.

The cost for booth space will be $15.00 for Chamber members and $35.00 for non-Chamber members. Price includes both Saturday and Sunday. Some spaces will have access to electricity for an additional $5.

“We think that’s a good price point. I think the one in Cranbrook is about $70. We are looking to get about 40 vendors. We just want to keep it busy.”

The market will also be an opportunity for businesses looking to expand to get a look at what the Mall can offer in terms of storefront, Guarnery said. It just seemed like a good idea all round, he says.

Contact Mike at the Chamber at 250-427-3666 or to reserve your space.
