A large turnout of people who came to an outdoor pop-up market in Outlook practiced social distancing and stayed safe while enjoying themselves at the same time.
Held on Saturday, August 29, the market was set up in the parking lot of the Esso service station and provided masks and a sanitizer station to attendees.
Organizer Kate King commented that the event was busy from the beginning, with people showing up at 9:30 in the morning. The market officially ran from 10:00 until 3:00 in the afternoon.
With home-based businesses on hand networking with the public and selling their wares, as well as family-run ag operations such as Spring Creek Garden, and the Outlook Locker Plant’s food truck set up nearby, there seemed to be something for everyone and for all interests.
That same day, a pop-up craft sale was also held just down the street at Robertson Gallery and Gift.
The theme of the outdoor market was ‘Small Business Helping Small Business’ and judging from the attendance and level of activity, it certainly seemed to live up to that statement.
