The third of the EcoSociety Winter Markets takes place on March 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hart Hall (501 Carbonate St.). There will be one more Winter Market after this on April 16 and then the Cottonwood Market starts up in mid-May. All the products on offer are hand-made or locally grown so you know you are strengthening the local economy when you shop at these markets

EcoSociety markets and events director Jesse Woodward said that “the first and second winter markets went really well and I am so happy to be able to add these events to Nelson winter scene. The public seem to really love supporting local farmers, artisans and crafts people and that kind of support really helps the local economy flourish.”

A $2 donation is being requested at the door to help the EcoSociety cover the costs of these indoor winter markets.
