Local Expand Opening Hours for the Harvest Season, Reflecting Community Input

In direct response to input from community members, Wildsight Elk Valley’s social enterprise Local is excited to announce extended opening hours. After a recent survey which drew participation from over 90 local residents, they are pleased to adjust Local’s schedule with the aim to make fresh locally-produced food available to more members of the Elk Valley community this Harvest season.

Launched August 22nd, their new opening schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday: 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM
  • Wednesday: 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Thursday: 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Friday: 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM
  • Saturday: 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Notably, Local will now open earlier on Tuesdays and Fridays, welcoming morning shoppers at 10:00 AM. This change accommodates more Elk Valley families and creates an additional volunteer shift, vital for our social enterprise which flourishes thanks to the support and dedication of our community members, supporters, and volunteers.

They extend their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who took part in their survey. Your valuable insights have steered these changes, reinforcing their commitment to adapt and serve you better.

They invite you to visit Local during their extended hours this Harvest season and enjoy the incredible bounty of fresh food, from fruits and vegetables to fresh bread and frozen meals.

Thank you for supporting our local farmers and producers, and helping to strengthen our local food system.
