An original Kootenays farmers’ market, New Denver is here to stay.
The small village with big community, New Denver has hosted their weekly Friday Market, every June through September since 1995. Against breathtaking views of the Kootenay Rockies, this gem of a market spreads out under the maple trees of Main Street on the beautiful big lawn of the old Motherlode Bookstore.
One of the first markets in the Kootenays, the New Denver Friday Market features locally grown vegetables, flowers, fruits, herbs and perennials alongside handcrafted pottery, jewelry, woodwork, and natural apothecary. The enchanting sounds of fiddles and flutes float through the bustling market, accentuating another ethereal morning in the mountains.
The McCormack family has been farming in Burton, BC since 1903. With a deep passion for growing food and being stewards of the land and animals, this family tradition runs deep and has continued for four generations. Located close to the Arrow lakes in the West Kootenays, this diverse family farm is renowned for having an amazing assortment of fresh, local food at their farmers’ market booth – from mouth watering bacon from pastured pigs, to duck eggs, daikon radish, spaghetti squash and much more.
Products: Pastured beef, chicken, pork, eggs, vegetables, and herbs.Website
