After a long, cold winter, spring has finally sprung in Mission and it is time to spring into the usually long-anticipated summer event season. Now is the time that the Sunset Market planning would be well underway for Fraser River Heritage Park.
Unfortunately, due to large-gathering restrictions surrounding the novel coronavirus, organizers have had to cancel the May and June Sunset Markets.
Instead, the market is going virtual.
A website has been developed to act as a platform for the vendors, organizations and performers who would normally have been present at the Sunset Market.
The virtual market will open online for one week each month.
The first virtual market begins May 19 at noon and runs until May 25 at noon. The second starts on June 16 at noon and ends June 22 at noon. To view the market,visit frhpvirtualmarket.com.
The virtual market will showcase non-profit organizations, workshops, local entertainment, produce, flowers and plants, as well as artisans and vendors selling everything from jam and jewelry to soap, woodworking and clothing.
Vendor pages will be hidden until opening day.
A decision in regards to the July, August and September markets will be made in the future.
