The Wednesday Market began last week and will continue on Wednesdays through Sept. 13.

Chamber of commerce Executive Director Peggy Nevsimal said a number of exhibitors have signed up for the entire summer.

The market runs from 4-8 p.m. each Wednesday at North Dam Park.

Nevsimal said those who have registered for the entire summer will have produce, other food items, decorated gourds, baked goods, children's items and some surprises along the way.

This is the first year that the market has been held on Wednesdays.

Exhibitors can show their products for a $5 fee each week.

The Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce is the sponsoring organization for the market.

People selling art welded from scraps or fashioned from gourds, hot dogs, knitted goods, baked goods and items from their gardens were spread out beneath the shade at North Dam Park last week.

Most said the evening had been fairly slow but expected it to be more popular as people learn where the new market is.

Nevsimal said the chamber has ordered a vertical flag banner to help highlight it from the highway.
