Guess who's turning 30 this year?

We've been at it for a while now... 30 years to be exact.

We hope that you'll join us this year as we celebrate our history and our future.

Remember we're open every Saturday from 10:30 - 12:30 and Sundays from 12:30- 2:30 at 4365 McLeod Road.

Here are some dates note:

June 3 - June 30th our Birdhouse Fundraiser will be kicking off.  Get your pre-built birdhouses at the INFO booth for $10.  Take the next few weeks to decorate them for donation to our silent auction in Aug as we raise funds to give access to fresh fruits and vegetables to our low-income seniors.

June 10-11th the Nutrition Coupon Program will be starting.  Our community partners: BOND and Family Place will have distributed the coupons to participants and our farmers will be ready to accept the coupons for fresh produce, herbs, meats, eggs and nuts.

July 1 (Sat) 10:30 - 1:30- Canada Day and our Birthday Celebration.  As we celebrate Canada 150 we're also celebrating Farmers' Market 30!  This day will be full of amazing music by the Blues Busters, 3 hours of market shopping time, some great giveaways and fun t-shirts.

July 8 (Sat) 11:00 - 11:30 - Storytime from the Library is returning to the market.  We're so excited to have Deb Zagwyn back with her stories, songs and puppets to entertain the kids.  Storytime continues until the last Saturday of August.

July 8-16th - Birdhouse Fundraiser continues as we receive the decorated birdhouses from everyone who's had a chance to decorate one.

August 7th (Mon) 4:30 - 7:30pm - BC Day and our Mid Summer Nights' Feast.  Local, award winning jazz ensemble Take 5 will be providing music as we share an evening at the market focusing on food and community.  Our Birdhouse Fundraiser Silent Auction will be happening that evening with all funds raised going to support the Nutrition Coupon Program for local low income seniors.

September 16-17th  noon - 5pm - Fall Fair 2017!  Check the Fall Fair Facebook site for updates as the year progresses.
