Inside the LEgion, many tables were set up as the summer market continued off of the street and into the building.

Eckville kicks off summer with a market

Eckville’s summer markets are held three times throughout the summer months

The first of Eckville’s summer markets was held on July 11, and was a smashing success, as many locals came out to view the wares of local vendors.

Road traffic was closed on 51 Avenue to allow for the market, which even spread into the Legion.

Vendors at the first market of the season had an impressive variety for shoppers to chose from. Everything from fruit and vegetables, bags, wood and metal works and other home based businesses.

With the market running over suppertime, a food truck was also located within the market, ready and willing to feed the hungry shoppers.

Eckville has two more summer markets planned over the course of the season. The next market will be held on Aug. 8 with the final summer market held on Sept. 12.

All dates will be held in the same location and run from 4-7 p.m.


A small group of locals take a moment to look at and marvel over a vendor’s jewellery selection at the first Eckville Market on July 11.
