New FN farmers’ market – Castanet.net

New farmers’ market launching with focus on First Nations growers, crafters

Jul 28, 2020

A new local farmers’ market is starting up this weekend with a focus on local indigenous businesses.

The Kweseltken Farmers’ and Artisan Market is a new initiative aiming at supporting First Nations and indigenous growers, producers and artisans says George Casimir. He’s the general manager at the Community Futures Development Corporation of Central Interior First Nations (CFDC of CIFN), an organization focused on indigenous economic development from Bridge River to Splatsin to Spuzzum.

“Kweseltken is the Secwepemc word for relatives,” he explains to Castanet. “What we all want to do is bring all the relatives in the Secwepemc nation under one roof.”

“Our membership has always wanted something like this, to really bring their goods and crafts and really showcase what they can do,” he adds.
