The Peachland Indoor Artisan Market becomes an indoor attraction in the autumn and begins October 7th this year, in time for Thanksgiving. The Visitor Centre in partnership with the Bat Society on Beach Avenue bring together artisans and foodies from throughout our beautiful valley. As it nears Christmas, the ambiance lends itself to Christmas shopping.
Each vendor is chosen for their quality and uniqueness, and we are looking for artisans who are interested in being part of our fine market. The market occurs every first and third Saturday each month excluding December and January due to our Christmas break and draws clients from Penticton to Vernon, so we are confident you would have a broad client base.
We also advertise throughout the valley and provincial tourism websites to ensure that the entire valley is aware of this unique attraction. Last year alone our markets attracted close to 5000 people over the course of the season and this year we are looking to only get bigger!
If you are interested in being part of our markets please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application.
