CSRD Two Grants-in-Aid

The Sorrento Village Farmers’ Market gratefully acknowledges the two Grants-in-Aid we received from the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.

These grants allow us to continue maintaining the Vault Toilet for the community of Sorrento and the tourists that visit the area as well as look after the landscaping of the berm between Highway 1 and the Sorrento Shoppers Plaza parking lot.

In May of 2020, the Sorrento Village Farmers’ Market took over the maintenance of the Vault Toilet. It’s located at the west end of the Sorrento Shoppers Plaza beside the tourist information station. Along with a bike rack and picnic table this area offers a place for people to gather and rest, enjoy the newly planted flowers on the berm and the view of the lake.

The toilet is an important community asset and we’re happy to provide the service to our customers and vendors on market days, and the rest of the community throughout the week. The beautification of the berm bordering the parking lot makes the market experience more enjoyable and anyone travelling on Highway 1 will notice the colorful flowers as they pass through.
