A popular Lumby event has garnered support.
The Regional District of North Okanagan has provided a $1,000 grant to the Lumby Public Market for ongoing operations.
“These funds provided by RDNO are crucial to ensuring that we can continue to provide these services to Lumby and the surrounding area, and we are sincerely thankful for this generous support,” said Gerald McLeod, market society chairperson.
Rick Fairbairn, RDNO chairperson and rural Lumby director, says the market is a community asset.
“For consumers, it’s a win-win. By shopping at local markets they’re getting fresh, healthful food straight from the farm gate at good prices,” said Fairbairn.
“It has been true to its goal of providing a community-based centre for people to meet and to have the opportunity to purchase locally grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, grains, and plants,” added McLeod.
