100% handmade! The Cranbrook Farmers Market runs every Saturday from 9am to 1pm, in downtown Cranbrook. It's the best place to find artisans, potters, bakers, distillers, produce growers and more all under one roof (or along one street)
The Farmers Market is the place to be on Saturdays, with vendors offering up everything from cold brew and rhubarb, beets and mead, honey, fresh eggs, grass-fed lamb, distilled spirits, woollen garments, and pottery. The latter is offered by Geri Binder who learned his skill as a kid, since his mother was a potter. He started up again about 10 to15 years ago, when he moved from Fort McMurray to Cranbrook. "I like to have lots of curves in my work," he said as a group made their way over from the Pommier Ranch Meadery table to admire his cups. "I started leaving dents and twists and finger marks, the stuff you normally smooth out." What Geri accomplishes is a truly unique style, and each piece is literally his handiwork.
Of course, you can't stop by the Cranbrook Farmers Market without visiting Niwas Rustic Breads stand, where their molasses ciabatta sells better than hotcakes.
