Supporting local vendors and helping out the economy.

That’s one of the key goals when it comes to events like this weekend’s Comox Valley Fall Craft Market.

The action took place at the Fallen Alders Community Hall and a bevy of people showed up to check out the homemade, home-based products vendors had to offer.

Mary Whyte was one of the vendors at the market, and she says there are many benefits to supporting local events like this.

Organizers of the Fall Market add there will be many more to come going into the fall and winter seasons.
