Higher Grounds Espresso Bar on 100 Avenue is continuing their evening vendor gathering this week.
The event has been created for residents to get together and enjoy a speciality coffee while shopping local from local vendors and supporting Higher Grounds.
Six local craft vendors are coming in to sell their products Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Higher Grounds Manager Betty Fraser said the inaugural event in January was a success.
“It went really well although it was minus 30 out,” Fraser said. “It was full in here.”
Fraser said the vendor evenings are a good opportunity to shop local and see what some small home-based businesses have to offer.
“I think people like to know what’s available in the community and support homemade products,” Fraser said, noting the previous outing had homemade items, a travel booth, cleaning supplies and other items for sale. ” There is lots available that people are not aware is available in Morinville. Setting this up raises that awareness.
