Vendors needed for downtown markets

Summer-long downtown market and Nov. 17 Red Deer Lights the Night Winter Market welcome vendors

Red Deer Downtown Business Association is seeking vendors for a pair of markets.

The ATB Financial Downtown Market is a rain-or-shine event held downtown every Wednesday evening through the summer months. Available products include fresh produce, locally raised meat and home-baked goods.

It will run May 30 to Oct. 3 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Little Gaetz Avenue (50th Avenue) and Alexander Way (48th Street).

Red Deer Lights the Night is the annual kick-off to the holiday season and an exciting community celebration. The Winter Market is one of many features of this event that draws thousands of people to the Downtown core each year.

The market takes place on Nov. 17 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Ross Street near City Hall Park.

As approved Alberta farmers markets, all products must be hand-made, home-baked or home-grown in Alberta by the vendor, as per Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development requirements. Wholesale, resale or commercially available products are not permitted.
