Final market of the season

Cottonwood Community Market mark the end of the 2013 season on Saturday, October 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The final Cottonwood Community Market of the 2013 season takes place  Saturday, October 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is the public’s last chance this year to experience all the  diverse offerings the market has on hand.

Live music will be provided by local favourites Steve Garth and friends from 10 a.m. to noon and then Rob Funk and Brian Rosen take the stage from noon to 2 p.m. to close out the market for another year.

It has been a stellar year at Cottonwood Market with lots of good weather and large crowds. Six months has already gone by since Cottonwood Market opened up for the 2013 market season in May.

One of the most successful elements of this year’s season has been the BCAFM Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon program. This program is a BC-wide initiative that helps to provide nutrition, cooking and healthy lifestyle skills building opportunities to lower income British Columbians.

Locally, for the second year running, EcoSociety teamed up with The Family Place (Kootenay Kids Society) to administer and coordinate this enterprise which helped many families and seniors to obtain access to wholesome and locally grown produce and meat. All in all this program was a big success for both the program participants and the local farmers in both the Cottonwood and Downtown markets.

To help ease traffic congestion at the market the EcoSociety encourages customers to leave their cars at home and walk to the market. Those who must drive can find early bird parking next to the market site or at the Rod and Gun Club parking lot but by midday it is advised to park at the foot of Baker Street and walk the two blocks to the market.
