Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market Mandate
'The Trinity Bellwoods Farmers' Market mandate is to support and increase community access to local, sustainable and/or certified 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 support slow food - gathering regional foods to cook and eat at hearth and home'.
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 modest sized community based functional farmers' market proper and our vendor count is not infinate. The vendor line up is curated based on our mandate, diversity, viability for participating vendors and Public Health regulations. Locally grown agriculture and local sourced ingredients are our priority.
Please NOTE: We are food focused and do not consider non-food vendors.
