Ring in spring with Street Market celebration

Revelstoke's unofficial summer kick off takes place Saturday with first farmers market and downtown street festival.

The Spring Street Market always brings lots of people out to downtown looking for deals.

By Judy Goodman, Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce

Join your friends and neighbours for Revelstoke’s first Street Market of 2016. Bring the whole family and meet your friends around town for fun & festivities. The Revelstoke Retail Leaders have extended an invitation to home-based businesses, local social enterprises and entertainers to join in a celebration of Spring. Welcome back our amazing vendors in the Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market at the season’s first official outdoor market.

There will be an RCMP bike obstacle course and Screen Smart activities in Grizzly Plaza from 2-4 p.m.

The Chamber will be closing First Street and Mackenzie Avenue and the shops at Alpine Village Mall will be celebrating with specials. After 50+ years of serving the community of Revelstoke, Cooper’s Foods will be converting to Save On Foods on May 6, 2016. The local team will continue go the extra mile for customers and support our community in a variety of community fundraising and support.   Save On Foods is a banner of the Overwaitea Food Group, which just last year celebrated 100 years of service. Save On Foods and the Darrell Deals brand brings a better price structure in the weekly flyer, “Fresh Solution.” Join the Save On Foods team for a barbecue on Saturday.

As always, the shops on First Street will have lot’s of great deals and new items for spring. Stop by Style Trends and meet Sarah Mickel, a talented local photographer. Revelstoke Museum & Archives is teaming up with the city’s parks department for a special day of activities and celebration of history.

Big Mountain Kitchen & Linen is hosting the Local Food Initiative for a seed swap and information on their initiatives and membership. At First Street and Mackenzie Avenue, check out local art by Kristy Lind, showcased in the resort shuttle bus; Revelstoke Mobility, Roberta’s Tanning, and spirit tastings on the Regent patio.

Make a stop at Pharmasave for some awesome deals and check out City Furniture and freshen up your home decor.

The street market would not be possible without the support of the Chamber of Commerce’s Retail Leaders Group. Thank you to these business owners that support our community all year round. Visit revelstokechamber.com for a list of participating businesses and retail leaders.
