About

The Peterborough Regional Farmers' Network is launching the Peterborough Regional Farmers’ Market, a Saturday morning farmers’ market, administered according to established best practice guidelines! 

Each farmer will be third-party verified as selling products they’ve grown or raised. Shoppers can visit the market with confidence that they are actually supporting local farms. 

Artisans, prepared food vendors, and musicians will also contribute to a vibrant atmosphere focused on enhancing and celebrating a locally sustainable food ecosystem.  

Funds raised will be invested in creating, promoting, and establishing a vibrant and successful farmers' market in the heart of downtown Peterborough.

Merchandise will either have "I ❤️ Local Dirt" or "Local Dirt, Local Worth" (LDLW)  on it. See updates for photos of merchandise available. 

Risks and challenges

Funding will be used to facilitate the operation and promotion of the market during its start up phase. Funds may also be allocated to facilitate an initial cost relief process for vendors, associated with the short notice of this market’s launch. Once the new market is established, it will achieve fiscal stability through the collection of vendor fees and other sources of income.
