A Momento of the Market

Did you visit or did you miss it? The Innisfil Farmers’ Market just wrapped up its inaugural 11 week season. By all accounts it was a popular success. This slide show below is a montage of photos to illustrate a day at the market and the effort that vendors put into it to make it all happen. Unseen, but indispensable too, are Innisfil Parks and Recreation staff who supply tables, chairs, garbage bins, store signs and assist every week with the physical needs of the market.

If you enjoy this little vignette, please share your impressions and thoughts on the market. What did you like the most? How can it be improved?  What else would you like to see next year? If you missed it, what kept you away?

  1. Hi, I would like to congratulation everyone that participated in making available this wonderful event all summer long. I really enjoyed being able to drop by every Thursday to purchase fresh vegetables and visit with friends that as well found this to be a great Thursday ritual. In thinking of the future and an interesting addition to this all might be an “art” component.

    Thanks again for the huge effort by all, looking forward to next year.

    • Your note is appreciated. Excuse my late reply. I would like to expand on your comment about an art component at the market. The experience of other markets may be helpful. In Midland, the Farmers’ Market holds an “Art Rodeo” every third Sunday. And here’s a description from the Brampton Farmers’ Market web site: “The Brampton Arts Council works with the Brampton Farmers’ Market to bring local artists and craftspeople to the market. Art in the Open, located in Garden Square, operates during the same hours as the Farmers’ Market. Brampton Arts Council members sell watercolours, dried-flower arrangements, woodcrafts, native arts, jewellery and lots more…” So, it may be worth approaching the next Market Committee to see if there’s a way to work together on this idea?
