Thursday night market kicks off in Sidney

Summer street market starts its 13th year on Thursday, May 30

The Thursday night market has been a tradition in Sidney for 13 years.

The Sidney market kicks off this week and organizer Laurie McDermid is excited for a new season full of fun and festivities.

“I’m really looking forward to it, there seems to be so much buzz and excitement around the market this year,” she said.

McDermid was appointed the new organizer of the Thursday night market last fall after she was chosen through a RFP process. The Town of Sidney issued the RFP after they terminated their agreement with the Sidney Business Association in April of 2012.

“We have some new and exciting vendors as well as many of the usual favourites,” McDermid said.

“There’s also going to be lots of new entertainment and the food stands are going to be spread throughout the market. There’s definitely something for everyone. I always say people should come to shop and prepare to linger,” she laughed.

The market, which has been a tradition in Sidney for 13 years, will run for 13 weeks this year. It is starting a week earlier than usual, McDermid said, and will run every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. until August 29.
