The Rossland Mountain Market is back downtown at the corner of Queen St. and Columbia Ave. every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. beginning this coming Thursday, June 27, and running until Sept. 26. 

This year marks the third season that the market has aimed to connect local growers, producers, and artisans directly to customers in Rossland. It’s the social event of the week all summer long, with music, great food, and good friends, so be sure to mark your calendars and come on out.

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, clothes and more.

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 age. At the first market the Rossland time capsule project will be out in the action as the Rossland Radio Coop airs 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.
