What to do on  a Wednesday Night?  is the scorching Summer Heat getting to you , well then what are you for head on down to Rotary Park  downtown Cranbrook. From humble beginnings on Wednesday June 24th with a grand total of 10 vendors and a  sparse crowd, The Little Market Who Could (as I like to call it) grew to  21 vendors and a large crowd on July 1st. The market which starts at 5pm and ends at 8:30pm,  has been averaging 18 vendors per week and the attendance has increased thanks to the hard work and dedication of Beverlee Bullough, Fisher Peak Vendors Market Coordinator, week after week she puts in countless hours to ensure that everything runs smoothly. There are also a small group of dedicated volunteers that help with set up and take down for vendors that require assistance. Beverlee gets to Rotary Park, Cranbrook at 3pm to set up and gets home after 10pm
The market features a variety of vendors from artisans, crafters, jewelry, health and skin care, cleaning products, food, fresh fruit and vegetables is presented by Fisher Peak Performing Artists Society who also provide Live Musical Entertainment showcasing  Local performers from 6pm to 8:30pm. Jamie Neve has been a mainstay in setting up, handling sound tech duties and taking down week after week, it must be a labour of love. Jamie gets to Rotary Park, Cranbrook at 5pm and usually gets home around 10pm. There are also small group of dedicated volunteers who have helped out with set up and takedown.
I for one wish to THANK both Beverlee and Jamie for everything they have done to make Cranbrook a better community, next time you are attending the Fisher Peak Vendors Market stop by Moon Bead Design Plus and say hi to Beverlee, walk up to the stage and say hi to Jamie as well.  There are three more markets Wed Aug 19th,  Aug 26th and Sep 2nd, hope to see you there. 
Best Regards
Louie Cupello
