Stoney Creek BIA brings back fresh tradition

Community Jun 24, 2019 by Laura Lennie Stoney Creek News

The Stoney Creek Business Improvement Area has brought back a fresh tradition in hopes of promoting local goods, healthy living and community spirit.

The business improvement area (BIA) held a soft launch for its Market in the Creek on June 20 across from The Village Restaurant along King Street East between Mountain and Elm avenues.

The market — which will run every Thursday until Oct. 24 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. along that stretch — features local produce, sweets and treats, health and wellness products, artisans, food trucks, children’s activities and more.

Some of the vendors include Fruitland Farms, Lincoln Line Orchards, Murphy's Country Produce, Sprinkles on Top, Sweet Potato Johnny, Hudson Integrative Healthcare, Shabby Sunflower and the Jamaican Patty Shack.

BIA executive director Tracy MacKinnon says the idea of resurrecting an old tradition that once saw farmers bring their goods to the downtown core is something local businesses and community members have talked about for years.

“We wanted to build on that history,” she said, adding that since news broke about the BIA’s Market in the Creek many people have expressed interest in becoming part of the venture. “It’s about bringing fresh, local and affordable produce to community members, right to their street and making it accessible for everybody. It’s also about building community spirit and creating a hub and meeting place for everyone.”
