Last Day of Running Springs Farmer’s Market Sept. 27-Come Get Gifts and Food While It’s Here!

The fabulous local bluegrass-celtic group, Wake the Bard, entertained at many of the farmer's markets and their music, was, and is, always wonderful. What an asset they are to this event and to the mountain communities.

Many local mountain merchants participate in this market and artisan’s faire so before it closes for the winter come on out and support your local vendors and those from off-the-mountain. There’s a huge variety of booths that sell everything from clothing, jewelry, beauty products, sweets, “no pesticide” fruits and vegetables, honey, jams, Olive Oil, herbs, delicious breads (try the garlic bread), toys, food items and on and on and on.

This has been a great event for the community in many ways (especially for the local vendors who participate) but the last day is closing in upon us.

To help customers “at the end of the season” shoppers who purchase items that total $25 on the same day will receive a free lift ticket to Snow Valley Ski Resort. One lift ticket will be awarded for every $25 spent and there are no “blackout dates” to use the ticket, which is a great advantage.  The limit will be two tickets each day per customer. If you’re not a skier give them as a gift to someone who is….what a great Christmas or birthday gift that would be!

Wonderful, talented painter, wood crafter Pam Cannata was one of our steady artisans who participated each Saturday.

The Farmer’s Market has been a big success and the sponsor, the Running Springs Area Chamber of Commerce, is very grateful to the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District for the use of their property for this late spring-summer event. We are also grateful to all the vendors who have participated this year and we are really grateful to all those people who have supported this new endeavor.  This is only the second year the market has been held and the chamber of commerce appreciates the support this program has enjoyed ans we especially appreciate all the “locals” and “visitors:” who have frequented this great community event.

A big “thank you” goes to First Mountain Bank, which is located directly next to the farmer’s market site, for the use of their parking lot and allowing the chamber to store tables and chairs, etc. in the bank building. Branch Manager Terisa Bonita and the other employees have been nothing but helpful so we all owe them a big “thank you!”

After the 27th we’ll have to say, “See you next year!”
