Fresh veggies and corn.

Corn is this week’s theme for the Rossland Mountain Market

Rossland Mountain Market’s Third Thursday of the Month Festival Series

Today marks the third festival in the Rossland Mountain Market’s Third Thursday of the Month Festival Series. It’s going to be a wonderful afternoon chock full of all things corn. There will be a truck filled with the freshest, most delicious, non-GMO corn freshly harvested from Creston, corn activities, corn information, kids’ activities and our first ever corn shucking race.

Think you have what it takes to be crowned our first corn shucking champion? Then come down and join the race at 5:00 p.m. sharp. You could win some fantastic prizes donated by the farmer’s market.

We’ll be rockin’ out all afternoon with Castlegar’s Motes & Oats. Known for their powerful harmonies and feel good songs, Melissa and Shannon won the 2013 Best Folk/Country Kootenay Music Award.

With the market staying open an hour later, we encourage everyone to head to downtown Rossland between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.—grab some hot cooked dinner, visit with your favorite vendor, and dance the afternoon away.
