GardenFest was started by three avid local gardeners in 2002 with just a few tables set out on Hall St. It has now grown into one the annual market highlights with over 50 vendors and community groups on hand with perennials, annuals, vegetable starts, trees and flowers – just about everything a gardener needs to get started or add to an already great gardening endeavor. There will be many of the regular vendors who are GardenFest staples as well as new vendors from across the area bringing plenty of variety to the market. GardenFest is always held on Mother’s Day weekend so if you want to get something lovely and special for mom don’t miss this market. You can also get gardening tips and planting information from the on hand vendors as many of them are long time Kootenay growers and gardeners who know all about how to cultivate in this particular region and weather conditions.
