Come on down and celebrate the Great Pumpkin Auction at Cottonwood Community Market on Saturday, October 19 from noon to 2 p.m. at Cottonwood Falls Park in Nelson.

Live music will be provided by local favourites Morien Jones from 10 to 12 and Soniko from 2 to 3 p.m.

Market goers will not only get to be a part of the pumpkin auction but they will also find everything from handmade chocolates to locally grown produce, delicious ready to eat foods to organic meat and eggs, handmade artisan gifts to locally made body care products.

This ever changing mix of drop-in vendors and full-season vendors makes for an exciting shopping experience that is always a little different from week to week.

This is the second-to-last market of the 2013 season so come be a part of Cottonwood Market before it is all over for another year.

By shopping at Cottonwood Community Market you are also supporting our local artesian crafts people and farmers which help strengthen our local economy as whole. It’s also just plain fun and energizing so bring your friends and family and be a part of the merriment.

The West Kootenay 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, but by mid-day it is advised to park at the foot of Baker Street and walk the two blocks to the market. Don’t miss being a part of the fun and excitement.
