Please READ the INFORMATION on this page before you submit inquiry form – it is not an application. It is the first and only mode of contact for tracking. Direct messages (DMs) on social media platforms will not receive a response. Due to the amount of inquiries and resources, only vendors that are within our mandate and are of interest may receive a response for further information. Thank you in advance for understanding.
Vendor Participation at Trinity is by invitation, season to season. Prior to each season, market management extends invitations to returning vendors and, if space availability permits, potential new vendors. Trinity is a modest sized with a vendor capacity. There is a very low vendor turnover. Quality over quantity. We do not have a waitlist.
The priority is to maintain the market integrity of supporting local agriculture that is sustainably grown and/or certified organic. Prepared foods that contain Ontario ingredients from sustainably grown and/or certified producers is also our preference. The vendor line up is curated for variety, overall vendor balance and maintaining our farmers’ market designation – 51% farmer to non-farmer ratio. We like slow food, not fast and minding our footprint in the park.
We do not consider vendors that use synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, products containing GMO’s, that are re-sellers/peddlers, or purchase at the Food Terminal, import goods, sell craft and skincare products, nutritional supplements, service providers or product representatives and pet food.
All participating vendors have gone through an application approval process and sign an Agreement. Vendors cannot participate without prior approval by market management. Equity in farmers’ markets’ matter. Trinity encourages BIPOC farmer’s to reach out and inquire. If we are unable to accommodate, we are more than happy to offer assistance with navigating and connecting you to other farmers’ markets that support equity and representation to help find a good fit. We welcome making new connections that go towards build healthy relationships and it’s great to know who’s out there!
Thank you for your patience and respect.
