KRFM Boundaries

(click to enlarge)

Boundary Description:

  1. From Clearwater to the intersection of Notch Hill Road and Highway 1 in Sorrento.
  2. The boundary then goes south to the edge of Falkland’s western limit on Highway 97.
  3. Then from Falkland to the Merritt town sign on Highway 5.
  4. Then in a northerly direction to the Cache Creek limit and Highway 1.
  5. Straight back north to the edge of Clearwater.

** Note: the towns of Cache Creek, Clearwater, Sorrento, Falkland and Merritt are considered out-of-area. The boundaries of the KRFM extend to the town limits.

The current boundaries were established in 1998, based on the boundaries of other community markets. The rules and regulations were clarified so that any farms who had originally assisted with the market viability since its inception were allowed to stay as special permission vendors as long as the business stayed the same. Boundaries were reviewed again in 2011, and the stipulation was made to the two remaining special permission vendors that this permission was not transferred to any person or business. If there are any changes to the owners or business, the special permission will be rescinded.

Special permission vendors: 

Erwin’s Bakery, non-agricultural vendor, allowed on St Paul Street with one vote on the board.

Jong’s Vegetable Farm, out of area agricultural vendor, allowed on St Paul Street.
