Dozens of shoppers got some of their Christmas shopping done early in Bouchie Lake, where a winter market was held on Sunday, Nov. 7.
Vendors were selling everything from homemade baking, cotton candy, artificial floral and wreath arrangements, wood carvings soaps, candles and more inside the Bouchie Lake Recreation Hall.
“The turnout has been very supportive,” Bouchie Lake Community Association (BLCA) volunteer Debbie Knabke said while at the market. “We’ve had a steady flow of people, and everybody has been very respectful, keeping distance and wearing their masks. The vendors I feel have been quite happy with their sales.”
Concession proceeds supported Terry Fox Run fundraising team ‘Family Fun’ from Quesnel.
Sunday’s winter market came after the association held a fall market last month.
The weekend holiday market is set to return on Dec. 4 and Dec. 5.
Funds raised from the table rentals go directly to the BLCA which organizes other markets throughout the year as well as the farmers’ markets held every Wednesday from May until September.
“The association puts on so many different things, and we’re there to support them, and they’re there to support us,” Knabke added.
