Market Notes

September and October bring the sale of bottle local VQA wine to the market for the first time ever! It's all part of a provincial pilot program this year. Nice eh? So, let's welcome the fall, indulge your inner wine connoisseur and come on up to check out some lovely wineries we got lined up - rotating roster see schedule.

FYI Bottled wine purchased at the market is not to be consumed in the market area and/or in park in accordance to by-laws. Evidence of such may well jeopardize the pilot program and/or market by doing so. Please drink responsibly.

Thank you for your cooperation and come buy wine! Support a local VQA winery, who are farmers too! The perfect opportunity to enjoy a local wine with your locally sourced meal ingredients from your local farmers market - can't get any better than that!

Have you seen our new sandwich boards on the streets yet? Queen/Gorevale, Queen/Shaw and up at the market area. Community members Martha and Connor of www.greeninghomes.com, donated the plywood, paint and hardware to build these babies, four in total! So, you see there are many ways to contribute/volunteer with the market! Connor @GreeningHomes is an uber talented fella. Big huge thank you! Not to forget, Mike and Norine for helping me paint the background sunny yellow too!

Big thanks to Nadegé and County General for allowing us to store the signs locally when not in use on Tuesdays.

Market is always on TUESDAYS 3-7pm Rain or Shine

VENDOR LINEUP IS FULL FOR 2014. Inquiries will not receive an immediate response. Thank you for your patience.

If anyone noticed, our winter was particularly hard and long this past. In response, produce is coming in a little slower this season. Some farmers are saying a few weeks. Please use our 'In Season' as a guide only, because climate change, is changing things up. Things are still good and there's plenty of food at the tables to bring home to the hearth!

Mandate

Welcome to the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market website.

OUR MANDATE is to support and promote local, organic and sustainable agriculture. To educate the community in the food they eat, the source from which it comes and how it is grown and/or prepared. To increase community access to fresh locally grown produce, meats and dairy. We support slow food - gathering regional food, taking it home to cook, and eating your meal at hearth and home with your loved ones.

TBFM is a food-focused farmers' market proper. It's about supporting our local food farmers and producers. Participation is by invitation season to season. Prior to each season, market management extends invitations to renewing Vendors and potential new Vendors - if space availability permits - there's scant turnover. TBFM is a small community-based market and it is thoughtfully curated to keep it viable for all farmers/vendors. Which is one of the main points. It is a balancing act when it comes to maintaining the ratio between farmers and non-farmers mandated by the City/Board of Health and upholding our mandate.

Vendors cannot participate without prior approval or arrangement by management. Trinity is a food-focused farmers' market and do not consider non-food vendors.
