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.

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!
Interested in volunteering at market? Volunteering for the Farmers Market gives you the opportunity.....
• To learn where your food comes from
• Get to know some of the producers
• Discover local food and how to eat seasonally
