We’re bringing back Vendor Spotlights for the 2020 Downtown Red Deer Market season to showcase some of the wonderful seasonal vendors that we have! This week’s vendors are West Country Kettle Corn and VinLDen. Check out their interviews below!

Aside from kettle corn, we have added nine other flavours to our popcorn.

What is your “best selling” product?

Dill pickle ranch, Carmel, Chicago mix and kettle corn!

Popcorn is a fun product. It’s a product for all ages. Kids love our tutti frutti for the colourfulness of to and of course the flavour. The smell of the popcorn draws people to our table.
