Our season's end gratitude goes out to...volunteers Martha and Connor of www.greeninghomes.com, for donating the plywood, paint, hardware to build four sandwich boards to help promo the market. Two of them we install on Queen Street. Thank you Nadegé and County General for allowing us to store the signs locally when not in use on Tuesdays. And our volunteers, the super-troopers who gave their time to help the vendors set up and wrap; Tessa (this years manager's asst.), Gay (been with us since the first year!), Sheri, Mike, Claire, Arla, Jessica, Jennifer, Sarah, Shawn, Georgia & Eli. Least we forget, thank you to all our fabulous participating 2014 vendors. It was a successful year, despite the weather, courtesy of climate change. Thank you loyal patrons for integrating the our fuctional farmers' market into your weekly shopping routine. That's what it's all about.

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.

NOTE: market season is over. Emails will most likely be responded weekly, perhaps on Tuesdays. Thanks for understanding that this volunteer work for management.
