The Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market opens for business at its new home in the Landmark District on Saturday, April 6.

The market has been a fixture at Dilworth Drive and Springfield Road for the past quarter century, but has been looking for a new home for the last few years.

“We’re on the brink of seeing our vision for the Landmark District come to fruition with the welcoming of the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market,” said Lisa Lock, CEO of Stober Group.

“Its presence will infuse the district with new vibrancy and excitement, making our community an even more lively and engaging place to be.”

Market president, Allie Becker, is looking forward to the inaugural day. “We are eager to embark on this new journey at the Landmark District, where our market will weave into the community’s fabric,” Becker said.

“We extend an invitation to everyone to come and experience the vibrant atmosphere of our first day in this dynamic new environment.”

A BC Association of Farmers’ Markets study found the Kelowna market delivered a nearly $16 million economic impact to the community in 2023.
