The West Kootenay EcoSociety will reopen the 2016 Nelson Downtown Local Market on Wednesday June 15th in the 400 block of Baker St. for its seventh year in a row. The market will run each Wednesday from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm through to September 28th, offering an amazing mix of local produce, plants, prepared foods, body care, and hand-made arts and crafts. Customers can rest assured that they are supporting the local economy due to the fact that 80% of each vendor’s wares must be made locally to be sold at the market.
