The Rockwood Farmers’ Market had it’s first season in 2015…
We began with only 13 weeks in the season, but in 2016, we expanded to 17 weeks, and we have not looked back!
While all aspects of Market planning are volunteer-driven, in 2016 we added a paid Market Manager who works seasonally, part time, on Market Days.
We have steadily grown each year, adding many more full-season and occasional vendors, and more special events.
Our Market is a member of Farmers’ Markets Ontario, and in order to be a true Farmers’ Market, we must maintain a ratio of 51% or more Primary Producers (those who grow or raise the primary products) to Secondary Producers (such as those who use local ingredients to make secondary products, or artisans and crafters).
