Last week’s market was all about corn and Nicole Riehl from Riehl Farms in Creston was selling corn like never before.

Riehl enjoys being in Rossland and says of the Rossland Mountain Market, “It’s an awesome market with a fun environment, great people and music.”

People that dared to venture out in between dark thunderstorms got both golden rays of sunlight and golden ears of corn.

Castlegar’s Motes & Oats provided the music and together with the well-awaited sunlight, got the crowd excited to be out and enjoying the popular market.

In the middle of the day, Riehl exclaimed, “It has been fantastic! Last year I sold about 60 bundles and now I’m already up to 80 bundles. It’s amazing.”

People were eager to try charming little cupcakes and seasoned salt from Salt Blendz. Also on site, local artist Daniel Bremer sold one-of-a-kind

t-shirts and jewellery.


It was a busy day in downtown Rossland and nearly every person could be seen with a bundle  of corn in their hands.
