French Extra Market

501 Carbonate Street, Nelson, BC V1L 4P4, Canada

For the Woman’s Day, bring your wife and your mom to Paris.
AFKO is hosting its second French Extra Market on March 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the old Anglican Church Hall on the corner of Ward and Carbonate streets.
This year, while your kid is building a cardboard Eiffel tower, you can enjoy a “café croissant” listening to a beautiful French ballad played by Catherine McGrath on the accordion. You could also shop at “La rue des Artisans” and stop for a picture on the bridge in front of “L’Église Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre.”
Come and hang out: films, full meal, art, buskers, chess table, affordable, fun and beautiful…
“We want to have something for everyone,” said Lyne Chartier , director of AFKO. “We’re really hoping it won’t just be our francophone community that comes out, but also the English-speaking people and families in Nelson who want to experience something different.
The French Extra is part of the Canadian-wide week “Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie” held in March every year. The local event is sponsored by Grounded Café and Heritage Canada.
Admission to the French Extra Market is by donation.
