40 Years of RFM; 40 Best Customers - #6

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.


Nominated by Joel of Stellar Gourmet Mushrooms, Best Customer #6 is actually two people!

#6 Cheryl Hanson and Jerry Spinarski

This retired couple has been attending the Market for as long as they can remember. Their favourite things to buy are mushrooms and eggs (maybe they eat a lot of omelettes?). Cheryl and Jerry prefer to enjoy their Market goodies together rather than hiding them. It seems to me that if you shop together, it makes hiding purchases from each other that much more difficult.

Cheryl and Jerry continue to shop at RFM for a few reasons: fresh food, friendly people and organic produce. 

What does Joel think of his Best Customers?

“Jerry and Cheryl are at the Market every single week, rain or shine. [They are] the definition of a dedicated Market shopper!” 


Thank you, Cheryl and Jerry, for being Best Customers!
