Our market is ….

We are a Farmers’ Market which means 51% of our vendors must be farmer/producers in accordance with Public Health Regulations and Farmers’ Markets of Ontario guidelines. We are governed by a Board of Directors (vendors and non-vendor participation) that selects all our vendors from applications received.

All our vendors must grow, raise, or 100% make what they sell. Reselling is allowed only by farmers with a special request on our application form. Each request is dealt with by the Board in order to promote openness and transparency for our visitors.  Signage must be used to show that the product comes from another source.

We provide a safe and friendly environment to shop and socialize.

We are a growing market responsive to our customers, and the community.  Music by local musicians at the market is from 10:00 until noon with special thanks to Clearview Township. We have a Canada 150 event starting 01 Jul 2017 for children to help them identify and make healthier choices. The Healthy Choice Scavenger Hunt is at 10:00 am every Saturday morning with a prize for the first 5 children to find a felt vegetable.

We do allow socialized dogs at the market on a short fixed leash that will sit at the owner’s side. They are not permitted near tables especially food tables with the exception of the dog treat table (George & Gracies). Owners must clean up after their dogs and are responsible for any damage to or at a booth, or any injury to a market customer. Please consider that not all our visitors are fans of dogs, for either personal or health reasons.
