Rossland Mountain Market kicks off third season

Rossland Mountain Market is back downtown at the corner of Queen Street and Columbia Avenue beginning Thursday.

Good things come in three’s.

And with this year marking the third season the Rossland Mountain Market has existed, the connection between local growers, producers and artisans to customers in Rossland is even better.

The Mountain Market is back downtown at the corner of Queen Street and Columbia Avenue every Thursday from 3-6 p.m. beginning Thursday, June 27 (and running until Sept. 26).

It’s the social event of the week all summer long, with music, great food and good friends.

Products on sale will range from fresh veggies to organic meats, baked pies to canned sauces, and everything from paintings and stained glass to practical, locally crafted, household items.

A mix of new and returning vendors are confirmed for the first market including the famous Sweet Dream cupcakes, organic produce from Earthy Organics, fresh bread and baking from the Alpine Grind, award-winning cherry juice from Creston, surprise treats from Mountain Nugget, freezer food from the Harvest Table, Yum Plum dipping sauce, Rossland Mountain Roasting coffee, as well as herbs and perennials, jewelry, pottery and clothes.

The market is not only a great place to support local entrepreneurs, it’s also a weekly community celebration. Starting July 4, the public library will have a tent for their summer reading club, welcoming kids of all ages.

At the first market the Rossland time capsule project will be out in the action and Rossland Radio Coop will air tunes. Buskers, of course, are always welcome.

 

If you are interested in being a vendor, or would like to publicize a fundraiser or other public awareness campaign at the market, please contact Rossland REAL Food (www.rosslandfood.com) or visit the Rossland Mountain Market Facebook page.
