BROKEN BOW–Opening day for the Broken Bow Market on the Square kicked off on Thursday, June 4 and featured beautiful summer weather and numerous vendors.
The Market is sponsored by the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce and welcomed opening day vendors including the Secret Garden, Mickey’s Greenhouse, Sandy’s Bake & Take, Julie’s Handmade Cards & Crafts, Vang’s Village Shoppe, Scentsy with Jessica & Brad Potter, County Catering, Tacos El Gordo, and TropicalSno.
For many people, the first market of the season may have been one of the first times out in public for recreational purposes amid coronavirus state Directed Health Measures (DHM).
The Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Deb Kennedy told KCNI/KBBN recommendations by the CDC, Public Health officials, the governor, and local officials are being followed by vendors, such as social distancing.
Vendors welcomed shoppers from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday with the lunch hour bringing many members of the public to the square. On behalf of the Chamber, Kennedy appreciates all of the support shown for the Market.
“We thank everyone for their support and encouragement of the Market! We feel very blessed to be able to bring this to you,” Kennedy said.
Head to the square on Thursday, June 11 for the second Market on the Square of the season. Check out the Market on the Square and Summer Celebrations in the Square Facebook page for weekly updates and photos.
In an interview with KCNI, Kennedy also said the Chamber promotes and markets the vendors who sign up for the Market. Not all vendors in the square are listed with the chamber.
Formerly known as Third Thursdays, the Summer Celebrations in the Square Concerts will not resume at this time. Kennedy said she hopes the concerts will be able to take place later this summer depending on statewide DHMs.
