Nesters Market was founded in the village of Whistler in 1987, giving the community its first true full-service grocery store. It soon became the locals store of choice and has remained that way for over 30 years. Nesters Market truly is “Where the Locals Shop”. In December 2001, Nesters Market was purchased by the Jim Pattison Group with the goal of adding an award-winning neighbourhood grocery store to the Food Group, and the intention of growing the banner throughout Western Canada.
Our second Nesters Market location was opened in Vancouver’s Yaletown district in September 2003. Over the course of the last 18 years, 14 additional Nesters Market locations have been opened across BC and Alberta, including major tourist areas such as Banff and Jasper National Parks.

At Nesters Market, we pride ourselves on excellence in customer service, a focus on fresh and quality goods, and a large selection of local, organic, natural and specialty products that you can’t find anywhere else.
