MarketFest opener brings in the crowds
The opening MarketFest went off without a hitch in spite of the cooler June temperatures and precipitation experienced in the West Kootenay.
Crowds flocked to west end of Baker Street to get a look at the vendors and experienced some high class entertainment.
The next MarketFest is set for July 22 with the finale happening August 26.
For keeners looking for that great deal on local produce, plants, hand-made art and crafts, the Downtown Nelson Local Market happens every Wednesday while Saturday is reserved for the Cottonwood Community Market at Cottonwood Falls Park which runs until October 2.
