Lake Country Farmer’s Market to hold customer appreciation day today

Farmer's Appreciation and customer appreciation day from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday at Swalwell Park

  • Sep. 13, 2013 2:00 p.m.

Last Friday marked the final regular day of the Lake Country Farmer’s Market but this week customers are asked to return to the market for customer appreciation day.

Residents of Lake Country are invited to attend a special gathering at the farmer’s market at Swalwell Park this Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. where customer appreciation day will be held in conjunction with a special event hosted by the B.C. Farmer’s Market Association called Farmer’s Appreciation Week.

Free drinks, cake and special vendor discounts will be among the special happenings at the event.

The Lake Country Farmer’s Market had another successful year after starting for good in 2001.

Former Mayor Robert McCoubrey headed up the group to create the Lake Country Farmers Market, now located in Swalwell Park and bigger and better than ever.

The market would like to thank all of the vendors that took part this year as well as the community that came out to support it.

Customer Appreciation Day is this Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. at the regular location.
