Helmer’s Organics is a regular presence, sharing their mixed leafy green and potato wares. Artisans showcase everything from custom-made clothing to leather shoes. Shoppers can also find authentic Indian sweets and savoury bites. A good portion of the market changes up every week, so browsers can stumble on something new each visit.

Local musicians strum up live music for the festivities, making Thursday nights in Pemberton a community event.

Vendors interested in joining the market can contact Solstice at 604-894-1410.


Bargaining for talent

Shaw TV Whistler is on the lookout for two charismatic volunteer hosts to steer a new weekly show that gets locals bargaining for a great cause.

The two talented hosts should be know-it-alls who can rattle off commentary on everything from skis and blenders to cars and toasters. Volunteers must be willing to commit four to six hours of research and preparation time to the position as well as a three to four hour shoot night.

If you think you have what it takes to captivate an audience, drop by the Shaw TV Whistler studios located above Marketplace across from Elements or call 604-932-2002.


Indie films continue to roll to large crowds

LUNAFliks is on a roll, popcorn-ing more than 700 film enthusiasts at its last two Thursday film outdoor screenings under the stars at Lost Lake Park.

The film night that welcomes viewers to pack a picnic basket, blankets and friends to the favourite community pastime carries on the reel indie film showing with the Swedish flick Slim Susie Thursday, July 19 at 10 p.m. at Lost Lake.

The comedy follows the story of former beauty queen Susie, played by Tuva Novotny, who goes missing in a quaint rural village filled with small town madness.

Her older brother Erik, played by Jonas Rimeika, returns from Stockholm to find out what happened to his sister and is shocked to discover his once sweet innocent sibling is anything but.

Slim Susie , directed by the award-winning talents of Ulf Malmros, has been described as a black comedy likened to a partnering of Pulp Fiction with Trainspotting.

“Humourous, vulgar, sexy and violent,” raved Gunnar Rehlin of Variety magazine.
