"The Trinity Bellwoods Farmers' Market mandate is to support and increase access to fresh, local, sustainable and organic agriculture. To educate the community in the food they eat, the source from which it comes and how it is grown and/or prepared. We like slow food, not fast food and eating at hearth and home with your loved ones”.
All vendors participating in the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market have gone through the application and approval process adherent to our Mandate. Vendors are not permitted to participate without prior approval or arrangement by the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market management.
Participation at Trinity is by invitation season to season. Prior to each season, market management extends invitations to returning vendors and potential new vendors - if space availability permits. Most of our vendors have been with us since our inaugural year and there is scant turnover. Trinity is a functional farmers' market and our vendor count is not infinate. The vendor line up is curated based on our mandate, diversity, viability for participating vendors and to maintain our 'Farmers' Market' designation. Locally grown agriculture and local sourced ingredients are our priority.
Please note: We are food focused and do not consider non-food vendors.
Vendor inquiries should be sent via our dedicated website www.tbfm.ca contact form. Please indicate if you are a farmer or a non-farmer and supply detailed information/list on what you grow or produce. We receive many emails and this information up front helps. The market is volunteer and part time work for management, in general emails are returned on Tuesdays.
