The Castlegar Craft and Farmers Market is open for the year and is a great place to spend a Saturday morning. The market will be open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until October.
Last week’s market was a wonderful display of foods and craftsmanship. Vendors selling breads, eggs, plants, honey, jams, pottery, paintings, wood crafts, stained glass art and more were on hand.
The market is held on the grounds of the Station Museum, giving shoppers a chance to take in a bit of history along with their veggies. The museum is housed in the more than century-old railway station.
The first provincial police station and a caboose are also located on the beautifully landscaped grounds, adding to the atmosphere of the location. You will also find some of Castlegar’s Sculpturewalk entries to enjoy there.
The farmers market gives you an opportunity to stroll at your leisure and talk to the growers, bakers and artisans that are there, enabling you to learn about them and their products. At the same time, supporting local farmers, entrepreneurs and craftsmen helps build the local economy.
