A creative incubator for locals, an inviting haven for visitors.
Along the placid shores of the West Kootenays’ Upper Arrow Lake, lays the rural village of Nakusp. Every week, the old Nakusp Firehall inspires, nourishes and supports the community by hosting Nakusp’s 50 Mile Year Round Market.
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.
