"I would like to thank all these kind people that made me feel so welcome and relaxed in the beautiful community of Whistler."

The Whistler Farmers' Market, located on the Upper Village stroll on Sundays, was just one part of a Vancouver resident's "wonderful" recent visit to the resort.

I would like to briefly tell you about the wonderful visit I had to your community on Sunday, May 22.

The scenery couldn’t be better, and the clean, crisp air was so refreshing, as were all the nice vendors at the farmers’ market.

One other thing that really stood out was the kindness of Scott, a maintenance man working along the sidewalk in the village. He looked very approachable, so I asked him a few questions and directions. During the conversation he explained a few interesting facts to me, and that it was opening day for the farmers’ market. He was courteous, interesting, and his friendliness made me feel very welcome.

After I discovered the wonderful Hot Buns Bakery, where the staff were equally friendly and kind, and the waffles were about the best I’ve ever had anywhere, I bumped into a bylaw officer, Kyle, on the walkway.

As we exchanged comments about the beautiful morning in Whistler, he offered to show me where the market would be on the other side of the bridge. He also was walking in that direction, so as we walked he mentioned a few things about the Indigenous cultural centre, how visitors can go up the slopes to restaurants, and a few other points of interest.

I would like to thank all these kind people that made me feel so welcome and relaxed in the beautiful community of Whistler. My wife and I plan to return soon.
