Owner and self-confessed “bookworm,” Wes Towle opened the shop in 1991. It is one of the longest-running businesses that has come through the Community Futures door.

This market focuses on local – very local. In order to support the truly remote food producers and artisans in the area, all vendors are within a 50-mile radius of Nakusp. On offer, everything from fresh produce and apple cider, to handcrafted birdhouses and original works of art – and on market days, hot meals from the repurposed community kitchen.
