It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for: the Cottonwood Farmers’ Market is back!

The West Kootenay EcoSociety is proud to present the first farmers’ market of the season at Cottonwood Falls Park on Saturday. The vendors are so eager to be there they’ve been knocking at our door to find out when they can set up.

“We’re as enthusiastic as everyone to see the market this weekend at Cottonwood Falls Park. Last weekend we had a very successful GardenFest, so we’re off to a great start for market season,” says Craig Mullin, West Kootenay EcoSociety’s markets co-ordinator.

The market will have the usual mix of local farmers with fresh produce, prepared food services, artisans and entertainment. The season’s live music kicks off with local market favourites, Rob Funk and Brian Kalbfleisch.

The EcoSociety manages the markets in Nelson, including last week’s GardenFest, the Cottonwood Farmers’ Market on Saturdays, May 18 to October 12, the Downtown Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays, June 12 to September 25, and MarketFest night markets on July 26 and August 23.

The Cottonwood Farmers’ Market is open 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. See you at the market!
