Longtime manager Erna Jensen has stepped aside as the manager of the popular downtown Cranbrook Farmer's Market.

The Market has named Livia Lara as its new manager.  She has been in-training with Erna Jensen over the last few markets and officially takes the reins when the market return to Cranbrook's Tenth Avenue in June.

At the Market's recent Annual General Meeting it was an opportunity for vendors and members of our community to show their appreciation and say goodbye to Erna Jensen—it was also an opportunity for the new market manager to listen to everyone’s suggestions, ideas, and opinions about the Farmer’s Market.

The Farmer's Market hiring committee stated that they are very impressed with Livia Lara's passion, knowledge and great smile... they are confident the market will be in good hands!

Erna Jensen is leaving the Market manager's position to open her own business in Kimberley.
