Collingwood Downtown Farmers’ Market kicks off its 2016 season!
Nothing says the beginning of summer better than the Collingwood Farmers’ Market. This year the market kicks off its 12th season on May 21st, and continues until the Thanksgiving weekend. Rain or shine, it runs every Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., outdoors in the Second and Pine Street municipal parking lot.
For years the farmers’ market has been offering a place to purchase quality produce, food and crafts. In addition, the idea of the 100 mile market (the market containing only produce from 100 miles around the market location) has been implemented to promote buying local and eating healthy.
The Collingwood market features produce vendors, local baked goods, crafts and artwork. There will be many new faces, in addition to the tried and true vendors that have been coming since the market began eleven years ago in 2004. .
The Farmers’ Market serves not only as a social catalyst, but also promotes the concept of buying from area farmers and supporting the local economy. The market is integral part of the downtown Collingwood experience.
In addition to approximately 50 vendor stalls, special events will be held at the market such as: children’s activities, musicians and demonstrations. The market promises to be larger than ever this year.
