Evening market was wonderful

"Now and then something really wonderful happens in Trail and Wednesday (Aug. 20) was one of those times."

Now and then something really wonderful happens in Trail and Wednesday (Aug. 20) was one of those times.

For as long as the farmers market has existed I have been whining and complaining that I could not get there due to the fact that I am always working at that time.

Well I would like to give a huge thank you to the people who were listening and managed to arrange Wednesday night’s event.

I knew I would have to attend after all the noise I made but what made me happy was to see all the other people who also took the time to check it out.

The vendors also get a huge thumbs up for setting up so many different displays that I didn’t know where to look first.

I hope this will be a regular event, even when the market goes indoors for the cool weather.

Needless to say, I had to buy something for myself but I made it better by getting a small gift for my friend at the same time.

I scoped out a couple of items that I intend to pick up at the next night market and from the many people I spoke with, they feel the same way.

This was without a doubt an idea that was long overdue.
