The new Western Heritage Market returns this evening (August 24) to Town Square.

The first one ran two Thursday's ago (August 10) in conjunction with the Classic Car Club; Mick Gee, organizer is hoping to see the markets grow and bring a boost to business in the area. 

"Feedback from one of the businesses is that they had two customers come in and say they have lived here for six years and never knew this place existed so they will be a regular customer now. A lot more businesses had customers come and see what they are all about, so it is just that exposure and everyone won."

While the first market started off slow, it didn't take long to attract a crowd. "Overall it went very well, the numbers were there and people started to come. As the Car Club turned up we had a lot of interest in the car club and the vendors, so it was a win-win for everyone."

This evening will include a number of vendors once again and an open door on many of the businesses within the complex. "On the entertainment side we've got line dancing for the next three markets. The first session starts at 6:30 for 15-20 minutes then a break, and then we start agian for another 15-20 minute session. Hopefully I will try to get him to do some square dancing as well as bit of a surprise added on."

Gee is still encouraging those who would like to be vendors whether home based business or artisans to contact him to reserve a table and make it a larger market atmosphere. You can contact Gee at cochraneonline@gmail.com
