Canmore Mountain Market
Canmore’s Mountain Market opens in late May and closes in early October. The market in Canmore has been going for over 20 years and is a staple of summer life in Canmore, both for residents and visitors alike. With a mixture of artisan crafts and seasonal fruit and vegetables, there is something for everyone. You may also have the pleasure of listening to some local musical talent. The market is situated in front of the Civic Centre Plaza located on 7th Avenue, about a 5 minute walk from our condos. The market opens at 10.00am and closes at 6.00pm every Thursday.
Some tasty seasonal fruit and vegetables are driven in from over the border in BC as well as the local produce from Alberta. It isn’t unusual to find the farmers or their families serving you at the stall.
You will also find some original craft stands from clothing to freshly ground coffee, Canmore’s market has plenty to offer. Come rain or shine there are always unique stalls to interest you.
If you fancy a tasty treat there are several food stands at the market, many of which are locally owned and run. Dawn and Russell are a great example of a couple offering artisan food, both spicy east indian food to eat on the spot and pre-packaged spices so you can recreate their wonderful recipes in your own home.
