Our mandate is to support and increase access to fresh, local, sustainable, naturally grown and certified organic agriculture during the Ontario growing season. To educate the community in the food they eat, the source from which it comes and how it is grown and/or prepared. Trinity is farmer focused, favours slow food, not fast food and eating at hearth and home. The market is operated by community volunteers. Human food only, no craft or services.

The province and city/public health determine the conditions in which we are operating according to our permit.
