Golden, Farms & Markets
View a larger image on flickr.com
There is no better time than summer to eat locally grown food. And farmers' markets are the best way to get those rich nutrients and full flavours into your mouth. So while you are touring around BC this season, keep your eyes open for locally grown produce and other local goods.
The Golden Farmers' Market begins June 24 and runs every Wednesday from 2 to 7 pm every Wednesday. Here you will find a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables from several local growers, as well as artisans' wares including pottery, soaps, jewellery, art photography, woodwork and more. Locally produced honey is a popular choice for market-goers. Artisan breads and home made pies are other favourites.
The smell of hotdogs with fried onions in the air and the sounds of live music all add to the delicious-ness and fun of the Market every Wednesday in the summer. For more info see www.goldenfarmersmarket.com. For more to do while in Golden, visit www.tourismgolden.com.

Golden, Kayaking & Canoeing

Despite the cool Spring in the Kootenay Rockies, the water levels of the Kicking Horse River have been steadily rising. This means one of Canada's premier paddling rivers, and BC's very first Canadian Heritage River, is about to become a playground for kayakers and rafters again for another summer. Tourism Golden has just launched a water level info page so paddlers can get up-to-date river beta to better make travel plans. Go to www.tourismgolden.com and follow the links through Things to Do - Summer Activities - Kayaking and Canoeing.
