The Merritt Summer Nights Market is intended to be a place where people can come and congregate, enjoy local food, buy local produce, shop local businesses, browse pop up garage sales, explore not-for profits, listen to local music and just experience Merritt. This is a family friendly event!
The Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce’s goal of the Market is to encourage people to come and see what Merritt has to offer in their own back yards! Give local businesses a place to come and sell goods, raise awareness, promote events, welcome visitors just passing through, and increase traffic to Merritt as a whole. But don’t stop in just the downtown! After you have browsed the Market, we encourage people to patron other businesses in the entire city of Merritt! Go shop, have a piece of pie and coffee, maybe dinner, pick up a movie or board game, or just find a great place to enjoy the evening in the Nicola Valley!
Businesses! We encourage you to put out your own sale tables and make use of your sidewalks! Plant flowers in your pots, open your doors and let the summer night air in to welcome people. Even if you are not open, that’s ok too, use your window space! Make a window display that attracts people back to your store during regular business hours and makes them want to come back and shop. The Chamber will gladly help you come up with a plan to boost business in a one on one meeting!
We are so excited about this pilot year for the Merritt Summer Nights Market, and we hope that the people of Merritt love it and it grows more and more every year until it becomes the go to place for Friday Nights in Merritt and the surrounding areas.
