40 Years of RFM; 40 Best Customers - #18

Laura and Jordan of Sacred Earth Soaps have been soap makers since 1998. And since 1998, their customers have been very clean and very happy. Many people come to the market with plans to add a bar of soap or two to their grocery bags, some with plans to FILL a grocery bag. Of Sacred Earth Soaps' many loyal customers, one has something that stands out as special. Maybe it's that he's tall, or maybe it's that he's always smiling. Or maybe Jordan doesn't quite know, but here is his Best Customer, regardless.

Jay sounds very Canadian! Since 2007, Jay has been visiting RFM throughout all seasons. His favourite thing to purchase is the healing salve from Sacred Earth Soaps. If Jay became a vendor at RFM, he would like to sell baking and pastries and maybe coffee as well. I bet it would be a popular booth.

Jay loves RFM so much that he wishes it would go all year round! When we asked Jay if he finds it necessary to hide purchases from his family, no comment was given; there was just an evil grin instead.


What does Jordan think of his Best Customer?


"[Jay] is friendly and committed. He has a common sense attitude and is very respectful."

Thank you, Jay, for being a Best Customer! 




In celebration of the RFM’s 40th Anniversary, we’re giving our vendors the opportunity to nominate and reward Best Customers. This allows our vendors to show appreciation for special customers that have supported them on their endeavours. Not every day is an amazing day at the Market, but these customers show up rain-or-shine.


40 years is a long time for any organization to be around, and it’s a lot of time for things to grow stagnant. RFM, however, is still thriving; we have never been more relevant and more loved than we are today. The Market family continues to grow along with customer attendance. We owe this success to the City of Regina, Regina Downtown, our vendors, and most importantly, our customers.


Please allow us to show our gratitude to 40 people in representation of thousands, with our only regret being that we can’t reward each and every person that takes the time to visit us, whether it’s once a week or once a year. Thank you.
