On Thursday, January 26th, The Symons Valley Ranch Market suffered a devastating fire.
The Symons Valley Ranch has been around since 1968 as a banquet hall, restaurant and lounge, hosting many memorable festivities. An RV campground was added 20 years later, but a fire destroyed part of the complex soon after.
Recreated and designed to be bigger and better, it became the home for many corporate parties over the years.
1993 saw the creation of a rodeo arena as yet another fantastic attraction for the facility.
More renovations took place and by 2004 it was officially know as the Symons Valley Ranch.
The Market is the latest addition to the property, starting in 2013 and growing in size and reputation as a hub for best in local produce, meats and crafts with unique offerings that became popular with Calgarians.
In addition to the devastating damage of the iconic Calgary landmark, 32 local vendors and their families have been affected by this tragic fire.
While every effort is being made to have the market back up and running in some kind of incarnation, the best thing to do is to continue to support the vendors.
Along with a letter of appreciation of support on the Symons Valley Ranch website, there is also a listing of vendors, contact information and websites for each including alternate locations where you can continue to support them.
