Wandering around the Kimberley Village MarketPosted: July 30, 2012

Kimberley Village Market 2012 is in mid-flight at its new location at Lions Park, by the Marysville Arena.

Running every Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lions Park until Sept. 2, the market offers a perfect cross-section of what folks expect to find at such an event.

If you’re hungry, they’ve got that covered, such as fresh made fry bread, mouth-watering cinnamon buns or novel pies-in-a-jar. If you’re looking for something new and groovy to put on a wall, a countertop, tabletop, dining room table, fridge or your body – that’s covered, too. There are information booths, crafts, fresh produce and fruit, entertainment for the kids thanks to the Kimberley Independent School and much more.

The market was held in The Platzl last year but moved to Lions Park this summer.

The Market Mission, according to the Kimberley and District Chamber of Commerce is:

– To create a weekly ‘event’ that will create vitality and traffic for local businesses during the summer tourist season;

– To provide the opportunity for local artisans, growers and businesses to sell their product directly to the consumer at a central market;

– To foster social gathering, community activity, shopping locally and to showcase local entertainers;
