History

Ellison’s Market is located in a 100-year-old building on Nelson’s main route through town. It started as a warehouse for Brackman-Ker Feed and Milling, then became the warehouse for Ellison’s Milling out of Lethbridge Alberta. It later added on garden supplies, produce, groceries, pet food, and a natural food cafe with live music and seminars on Saturdays.
