Rossland Mountain Market kicked off another market season last Thursday.

Hosted between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Columbia Avenue and Queen Street, next to Rossvegas,  the market was full of vendors and a happy crowd.

Seeds and plants were being sold to boost this year’s gardens with local products. Kelsey Neufeild is growing her first garden in Rossland and went to the market to get some tips and ideas, “I’ve got a huge garden bed ready to be filled with plants but I don’t really know what I want to plant and what grows best in Rossland” she said.

Locally grown fruit trees ready to put in the soil were popular for many, along with garden hats, herbs and décor.

 

The Whiskey Jacks, a summer project with singer Brad Mackay, were setting the beats for the market. Kids loved the music and were dancing and hula hooping in front of the band.

For a little treat you could buy freshly made sweets like cute cupcakes and almond chocolate ice-cream sandwiches or get something savory. “The goat tacos were amazing and I really like the tunes.” said Katrina Kloppenburg who bought tacos made with locally raised goats from the Harvest Table.
