Nelson Farmers Market
Welcome to the Nelson Farmers Market. Our 2020 Market season will be an Essential Food Only Market. Items sold include fresh produce, prepared takeaway foods, and edible plants.
The Nelson Farmers Market runs every Wednesday and Saturday, from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.
The Market for both Wednesday and Saturday is located at Cottonwood Falls Park 199 Carbonate St, Nelson, BC V1L 4P1
Farm produce, bakers, artisans, community spirit, and much more are all that make the Nelson Farmers Market the heart of our community. Our goal is to provide a market that allows community members to access healthy food and support the direct interactions between farmers and consumers. The operations of the Nelson Farmers Market are a means of the City of Nelson’s goal to promote and support local food sustainability.
In-light of COVID-19, we have established guidelines and protocols that support the direction and guidance of our Provincial Health Officials and the Federal Government. There will be a mandatory hand sanitizing station at the entrance. All patrons will be guided by delineators to ease the flow of traffic. The City of Nelson has established COVID-19 Protocols and Safety Plan for the markets.
All patrons on the Market premises must adhere to the distancing and sanitizing protocols we have provided. If you choose not to comply, you risk the chance of being asked to leave.
Some of the vendors you will see at our Market include:
