Some people give time, some money, some their skills and connections, some literally give their life’s blood. But everyone has something to give.
— Barbara Bush

Who Are We?

River View Farmers’ Market is a volunteer ran market located in the community of Elkford, BC. 

Elkford is a picturesque Rocky Mountain town founded in 1971. Elkford has grown over the years from a collection of temporary homes to its current population of nearly 3,000 residents. Elkford remains a place where nature prevails – and humanity borrows a bit of space. Pristine natural wilderness is highlighted by proximity to Elk Lakes Provincial Park, Height of the Rockies Wilderness area along the continental divide and world class fly-fishing on the Elk River. The community boasts with a range of recreational amenities that include a 9 hole golf course, an 18 hole disc golf course, a local ski hill and over 40 km of maintained multi-use trails in and around town.  

River View Farmers’ Market is directed by The Elkford Community Enhancement Society which was founded in August 2015 by a group of like minded community members who want to see Elkford become the best place to live.

The Elkford Community Enhancement Society is a nonprofit organization that develops, promotes and shares local project ideas. Together, we will bring local citizens together to achieve common goals, thereby developing a more united community-empowered to create positive change.
