Flea markets aid fall fair

Sooke Fall Fair raised funds through weekly flea markets at community hall

Beree Desfosses one of the vendors at the fall fair flea market.

This year Sooke Fall Fair is working on the theme of light and soil in the circle of life and as a conscientious group we are working together with our community to provide opportunity for locals and others to come together to help protect our soil for growing, giving of life to humans and animals and to help to continue a healthy region in which to raise our families and a place we feel proud to invite others to come to. We invite folks to join us in our efforts in the fall fair to provide healthy competition in growing, sewing, art and livestock.

On Saturday, Jan. 31, we at the fall fair are providing the opportunity for you to come and swap and shop at our monthly Flea Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and to enjoy our concession with healthy locally produced food and to recycle and reuse in an effort to keep items of good use out of the landfill and to help support our local fair. We have a wide variety of vendors, from quality clothing, hand sewn or knitted articles, household goods, plants, seeds, baking, collectibles and more. We look forward to another great Sooke Fall Fair with all the participants of our region. Join us for a cup of coffee and a chat at the market and stay awhile and meet our vendors.

For further information please contact me at: mrslewersfarmhouse@shaw.ca or 250-812-2830 to become involved in our fair.

For table rental please contact our fall fair ambassador  Candace Linde at 250-474-5771

Help keep our region sustainable

Ellen Lewers, President Sooke Fall Fair
