Cottonwood Farmers Market


A Nelson institution with a rotation selection of treats.

Nelson’s Cottonwood Community Market has been serving the public for more than 40 years, every Saturday from the start of spring, through to early autumn.

The rotating selection of vendors passing through this unique market all season long keep the offerings unique and the variety exciting, while a diverse roster of musicians set a lighthearted, family friendly mood against the beautiful backdrop of Cottonwood Falls Park. Lineups tend to form early in front of local favourite beverage stands, but the abundance of fresh produce, eggs and honey, natural meats, artwork, fashion, and crafted works sure help pass the time.

This market participates in the BC Farmers' Market Nutrition Coupon Program.
