Oh my gosh. If you take a walk down Baker Street or any of the roads around Nelson, prepare to be overwhelmed with the friendliness that the local exude.

Stroll down the length of Baker Street. It is like stepping back to the fifties. Locally owned business' clothing, sporting goods, bike shops, bakeries and coffee shops, real book stores and a small jewellery shop that actually fixed my watch while I had a coffee and called me when it was ready. Even the old people look healthy and outdoorsy.

In addition to some great local stores and restaurants, the downtown has a lovely outdoor farmers' market on Baker Street, Wednesdays 9:30-3:30. It features produce, local jams, honey, pickles as well as local crafts. There are about 30-40 vendors.

If you like old buildings this is a great walk to take. It actually coves several streets and is worth the time to do.

Fantabulous collection of individual stores, no chainstores here. From the stylish to the downright odd, and great food places, too. Needs to be taken in one step at a time.

We enjoyed walking along the street and poking in and out of the many shops and restaurants. It was a very pleasant experience and allowed for an enjoyable day.
