OUTDOOR FARMERS’ MARKET INFORMATION

Our Farmers' Market

Our Farmers’ Market is a true Farmers’ Market! This means that all of our vendors produce the products they sell at the market, and at least half of those vendors are farmers. We believe this allows for ultimate transparency! Our farmers’ market is a place to meet your farmers and meet your makers, and ask them all the burning questions you want answered.

Where was this tomato grown? What ingredients are in this bread? When will strawberries be in season? Where do you source your ingredients?

These are all great questions and easily answered when asked of the person who grows, raises, makes, or bakes what you buy.

Meet your farmer and introduce yourself to your maker this weekend!

Experience the taste of local. And find that there is nothing better!

All our vendors come from within our local boundary. South Western Ontario offers a broad flavour profile, and at our market you will find fresh fruits and vegetables from across the seasons, local meats and cheeses, maple syrup, honey, preserves, breads, baked goods, prepared foods, and so much more!

Interested in becoming a vendor at our outdoor market?

We have begun our 2021 Summer Season and have limited space left for new vendors. The application is available below and you are welcome to contact the market manager via email if you are interested or have any questions!

Our market works to maintain a minimum of 51% farmers in order to stay true to the definition of a farmers’ market. We do not permit any reselling and require you to be from within the local boundary. More information can be found in our vendors’ handbook. Vendor fees and spacing can be found at the bottom of the application.

Email Farmers’ Market Manager Patricia de Wit with any questions you may have at: farmersmarket@coventmarket.com. Please submit forms in person or via email.

Wine Now Available

VQA wine is now available at our farmers’ market! The Ontario Government started a pilot program in 2014 to allow 100% VQA Ontario grown wines to be sold in farmers markets which already sell local foods.

Certified organic

Lucky us! We have many certified organic vendors at our market. Do you have questions about what organic means?

 

 

MyPick Verified Farmers

Look for our MyPick® verified farmers! When you see a vendor displaying a MyPick® sign, you can be sure you’re getting just–picked freshness from the grower’s own farm, and are helping support local agriculture.

Dog Policy

Dog Policy at our farmers’ market: No dogs allowed in farmers’ market area during farmers’ market hours, service dogs excepted. Thank you for understanding.
