Seeking More Mechandize for Saturday Market

The Chamber and the Horizons Steering Committee is relaxing the merchandise requirements for the Saturday Market.  Previously merchandise needed to be manufactured or created in the Lost Rivers Valley.  The committee is would like to expand participation by permitting Lost River Valley businesses to sell items that might not have been manufacture or created in the valley.  If you would have an interest in participating in the Saturday Market as a vendor, but didn't think that what you wanted to sell qualified, please send in an application for the committee to review.
