Lots of treasures to be found at upcoming Nazko market

Sunday’s market will combine a flea market and a farmer’s market

There’s a chance to find all kinds of treasures in Nazko this Sunday, as the community hosts a Farmer’s and Flea Market.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4, vendors will be set up outside the Nazko 3 Nations Store and Lodge at 9480 Nazko Rd.

Shannon Bell, who is one of the organizers, says the event will combine a flea market and a farmer’s market, so there will be people selling a wide variety of previously-enjoyed items, and she expects there will be crafts, fresh food and much more.

Bell is still confirming who will be at the market, but she anticipates there will be some jewelry, possibly a variety of different kinds of art, including pottery and textile art, and hopefully some fresh produce.

“We have a very artistic community,” she said. “We have a music and arts festival every year, and I’m hoping a lot of the same people who show their stuff at that will come. There should be a good variety for people interested in homegrown things and all those treasures you might find at a flea market.”

Bell encourages people to stay for lunch, as there will be specials at the Nazko 3 Nations Lodge that day.

“I’m hoping it will be a nice weekend if people want to come out and camp at the park and come out on Sunday,” she said.

Bell says they used to have a regular farmer’s market about 20-25 years ago, and some people were at the lodge asking about it, so they have decided to try to resurrect it. They have planned another market for the Sunday of the Labour Day weekend as well.

“If these go well, it just might be a new tradition again,” said Bell.
