Makers are coming to Fort Langley, and as they have for the past couple of years, they’ll be bringing a wide range of creations for the public to peruse and buy.

One thing that has changed for this year’s opening of the Makers Market on May 20 is the location.

The market is situating just outside the Fort Langley National Historic Site, off Mavis Avenue.

Organizer Ange Eely is expecting participation from about 40 creators, reinventors, and small businesses, many of them local, offering art, crafts, jewellery, environmentally friendly ideas and creations, re-purposed goods, and more.

Eely noted that the market opening will be in keeping with the many May Day activities going on around Fort Langley.

“There will be music, Trio’s food truck, balloons for kids… it’s going to be a good family time,” said Eely.

The May 20 Makers Market, running from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., is the first of three planned for this year.

The next one will be on June 1, and then the third will take place on July 1. All will be at the Mavis Avenue site.
