Connecting local farmers, artisans, and producers within 150 km of Nelson to local residents, our Nelson farmers’ markets are building greater food resiliency in the West Kootenays while lowering carbon pollution from food transportation and boosting the local economy.

All weekly markets are registered with the BC Farmers Market Nutrition Coupon Program, which distributes coupons to low-income families and seniors. The coupons may be used to purchase fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, eggs, nuts and herbs at participating BC farmers’ markets. By enabling low-income citizens to purchase fresh food directly from the farmers, the coupon program increases access to healthy food while supporting local producers – double win! EcoSociety is proud to play an integral part in administering the Nutrition Coupon Program in Nelson.
