Wednesday Market coincides with Music in the Park

The Community Market is back on Wednesday, providing a local shopping experience alongside the popular Music in the Park series.

Wendy Buyar, organizer of the Market, is excited for the changes this summer season.

“There has been a huge change recently,” she said. “We just started expanding into the indoor space of Centennial Hall. That gives us more space compared to just being outside.”

The change also ensures that adequate parking is available for everyone to come and enjoy both the market and the music

“It is great because we have the opportunity to bring in a variety of new vendors. We are quite happy,” Buyar said.

The Market runs every Wednesday throughout the summer from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and the Lacombe Performing Arts Centre helps put on the Music

“They put on Music in the Park every week with a different band, so we have different music every week. This week it is the Nova Scotiables,” Buyar said.

The Market, according to Buyar, allows people to go to a market experience after work rather than during a weekday.

She added residents can expect, “Expansion with new vendors and trying to give a greater sense of variety.”
