Connect with Canmore’s Community
Wouldn’t you rather stroll amidst outdoor stalls of fresh produce and handmade art in the middle of the Rocky Mountains on a sunny day than roll your cart around a grocery store? Yeah, we thought so!
The Canmore Mountain Market is a community hub—a place to meet up with your friends, bring your children, or just get a taste of small-town mountain life in the midst of our ever busy lives.

Located in the Canmore Civic Center Plaza, within the heart of town, the Canmore Mountain Market runs every Thursday 10am – 6pm, May 26th to October 6th.
Demonstrating true mountain resilience, the Market runs rain or shine – and everything in between! An ever popular local event, all patrons of the Canmore Mountain Market will be treated to a truly community-centric piece of Rocky Mountain culture.
