Our most excellent town of Powell River! What makes our town great?


And at  THE NUTCRACKER MARKET we appreciate every customer that walks through that door (and every customer purchasing from our online store)


Powell River is HOME to so many of us and we live here because of its rich history, our families legacies, and the beautiful nature surrounding us. We're good with the fact it takes 2 ferries to get here.

We're proud of our town and its people!


THE NUTCRACKER MARKET is closely connected to our community, participating in annual events that bring people together for the common goal of supporting local.



The Nutcracker Market is a proud member of Powell River Women in Business! By providing grassroots mentorship, multi-dimensional continuing education, a directory of resources, and business planning tools, WIB endeavours to help women turn dreams into actions and actions into sustainable revenue.
