New Friday market lends space to local vendors

While many Langley restaurants have opted to take advantage of the city’s new proclamation to move seating outdoors, the city is now inviting other vendors that need not be associated with the downtown scene to join in for a Friday market.

The Langley Chamber of Commerce and the city’s new creative district, Langley Creates, have partnered to host a weekly market, which will run 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Fridays from July 3 to Sept. 25 on First and Second streets of the city.

According to a press release, artists, crafters and food growers will be able to join the restaurants in expanding outside. Vendor spaces will be 10 by 10 feet and social distancing guidelines will be in place.

Weekly participation cost is $20, while seasonal participation is $175. Seasonal vendors will be prioritized and receive the first space assignments.

A City of Langley temporary vendor’s permit is required at a cost of $33 and is good for the whole market season.

To register, visit the Langley Chamber office at 208 Anthes St. or online at www.visitlangley.com.

To participate in the July 3 opening market, registration materials must be turned in by this Friday, June 26.

Applications may be turned in throughout the summer, but need to be in at least a week before the preferred market for space assignment, the press release stated.

• Questions can be directed to Market Manager Jesse Levesque, who can be contacted by emailing Jesselevesque@gmail.com.
