After the first advisory committee meeting on Monday night, we have decided to keep the vendors to home made/grown/produced items only – for this year at least! We are working hard to earn a “Farmers’ Market” designation with Waterloo Region Public Health. By earning this designation, we are able to accept vendors who have prepared food in their own kitchens. We are working hard to make this market successful for all!
Check out the other pages (linked above) for more information on becoming a vendor, busker or volunteering!
So let’s get creative on how we can make our Wellesley Farmers’ Market a BIG success!
I’m very excited to see Wellesley’s first Farmers’ Market moving forward! I’m looking forward to a central location for local farmers/crafters to sell their products on a weekly basis, not having to drive all the way to St. Jacobs and fight the tourists just to buy some veggies! This is going to be a trial year and if things progress then maybe we’ll be looking at a year-round market at some point – indoors in the winter…don’t worry 😉 Remember – the market starts June 7th and will run until October 4th this year (2014). It will be held weekly from 9 – 12 on Saturday mornings – in the pavilion at the park! So your kids (and dogs) can play while you shop. Could you do me a favour?
