Langley’s first Winter Market at KPU declared a success

Event matched or bettered performance of regular season, more winter markets planned for next year

Following the success of the first-ever Winter Market in Langley, more are planned for next year, said Cherise McGee, manager of the Langley Community Farmers Market.

Despite damp weather conditions, the four-hour event, held in the courtyard of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Langley Campus on Saturday, Nov. 5, drew 34 vendors and about 1,000 attendees.

Sales were “average or above average” compared to the regular market dates, McGee said.

But there won’t be another winter market this year because it is difficult to get a large selection of vendors as most are committed to other events earlier on in the season, McGee said.

“We would love to offer more dates this season but the logistics just are not on our side this year,” McGee said.

Next year, she expects there will be “multiple” winter markets.
