The Orchards

Farmers Market

 

We are proud to announce that the Orchards Community Farmers Market will be taking place for the 4th year in a row in the Summer of 2020. Farmers markets offer small and mid-sized vendors and suppliers a low-barrier entry point to develop and establish a thriving business free from the overhead necessary to sell in large retail outlets. But just as important, farmers markets create a space where the focus of food is on quality and farming practices rather than price alone. Local farmers and vendors will deliver fresh, local food and products to a growing number of shoppers demanding food that is healthy and products that will be unique. Behind the rows of produce, busy vendors, and eager customers, farmers markets are a bustling hub of sustainability.

If you would like any further information, or if you have an amazing product and would like to participate as a vendor, please email programs@orchardsra.ca

Vendor Application available here! 

Dates for 2020! 

June 1, 8, 15, 22, 29

July 6, 13, 20, 27

August 10, 17, 24 (there is no market on August 3 due to the holiday, or August 31)

 

 

So please, if you are committed to supporting your local farmers, remember to go to the market even on rainy (or snowy!) days. It may not be as fun as meandering about under blue skies, but the crowds will be smaller and your farmer will be grateful for the support.
