City of Nelson Farmer’s Market – Cottonwood Falls Park

Nelson / Kaia'mElEp (or k'iyá'mlup)

Kaia'mElEp (or k'iyá'mlup) - The traditional and unceded territory of the Ktuanxa, the Syilx, and the Sinixt peoples.

A Nelson institution with a rotation selection of treats.

Nelson Farmers’ 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 food vendors passing through this unique market all season long keep the offerings unique and the variety exciting. Lineups tend to form early in front of local favourite beverage stands and the abundance of fresh produce, eggs and honey, natural meats sure help pass the time.

We acknowledge the Nelson Farmers’ Market takes place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Ktuanxa, the Syilx, and the Sinixt peoples.

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