Bentley’s Christmas Farmer’s Market attracts a good crowd and many interesting items were for sale.

There were almost 60 vendors at the Bentley Christmas Farmer’s Market staged inside the Blindman Valley Ag Centre on November 23 and the market was deemed a success by both organizers and vendors.

Offered for sale was everything from Christmas décor, jewelry, baking, handicrafts, wine, the local history books, inside and outside adornments, clothing and artwork, books, woodworking items, kitchen utensils, gifts for children, and other foods.

The concession, run out of the newly completed and accredited Ag centre kitchen, was run by Bentley Library Society volunteers who offered homemade chili-on-a-bun, a variety of deserts, and something to drink.

“It was steady and people were shopping this year,” said market manager Judy Esmond, who was pleased with how it went.

Easy listening music was provided by Rick Moore and the Burnt Timber Swing band.

There were a number of free door prizes and give-aways.

The local volunteer organizing committee continues to donate money back to the community. More members are always needed to serve on the Farmer’s Market board. Contact president Vicki Spycher at 403-748-3312 to find out how you can help. Get involved in the community: enjoy a local outing/event, have fun, and meet local people!

For information on booking in at Bentley’s farmer’s markets call local market manager Judy Esmond at 403-748-2838. The markets run from the May long weekend to the September long weekend located in and around the local curling rink.
