In the Spring of 2015 The Ross Ferry Stewardship Society and community members collaborated to create a Farmers’ Market.
Despite the short notice (planning began in April 2015) the Market came together and soon became an integral part of our Summer Sundays.
Mark your calendars! The first market of the year will be held on Sunday July 8, 2018 at our usual time place and time. Please see our website for information on becoming a vendor with us. Looking forward to another great season. Most of your favourite vendors are returning and there will a couple of new faces. Some of the products for sale will be: beer, bread, eggs, fish, preserves, perennials, strawberries, sweets, and vegetables. Books, chairs, doggie fries, iron works, photography, and signs. And don’t forget our Café Lars with all of his yummy treats.
The aim of the market is two-fold:
- to encourage the use and production of local food
- to foster a spirit of community by providing an opportunity to bring people together for social interaction and community buildingSundays from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm during the summer and early fall months you can find us at the Ross Ferry Fire Hall (just stone’s throw from the Ross Ferry Marine Park)The first market day of 2016 was July 3, 2016
