A view down the Columbia River near the community of Genelle, BC, about 15 minutes from Trail.

As we’ve mentioned before in our community post, we live in a small hamlet minutes outside of a southern interior BC town of about 7,500 people. Trail, as well as many communities in the West Kootenay, has a wonderful, well read newspaper that is a great supporter of local business.

June 7 was the first Outdoor Trail Market for 2013 and was our busiest Kootenay Spice venue yet! The weather was perfect and we owe much thanks to an article printed in the local paper, the Trail Times. Many customers stopped by our stand just because they had read about us in the paper!

This past Thursday, a version of the article was also featured in the West Kootenay Advertiser, a regional publication that is delivered to 25,000 homes in the West Kootenay. We have already received phone orders as a result! To read the article, click here.

We make a conscious effort to support local business and appreciate so much when others do the same!

We look forward to the next Trail Market on June 21. We have also been looking into other local summer markets like the Saturday market in Castlegar (every Saturday from 9 – 1). Be sure to follow us on Facebook, we will let you know where we will be and when we will be there!
