Farmers Market Latest News

Would you like to help sustain the market?  It's easy, come volunteer! 

If you are interested in helping out, getting to know farmers/vendors, appreciate a little great urban-outdoors and not afraid of a little physical work, then this is for you. It's a rewarding experience and our vendors (farming is back breaking work) truly appreciate the hand.  

 Volunteers are mainly needed during market season, shifts are....

12:30 to 1:30pm - early set up

2pm to 3:30pm - vendor set up

6:30 to 7:45pm - wrap/clean up for vendors and organizational

You can sign up for any length of time during the season.  Some volunteers do the entire season, some do a few months or take a break and come back in the fall.  We understand unforeseen events that may cause volunteers to cancel. No worries, just give us notification and/or coordinate your schedule with our schedule. Easy peasy!

We sometimes need volunteers outside of market season for various tasks (flyer distrubution, handy work, etc.) perhaps you have skill that we can utilize? For example, this year (2015), we need some tubular/pipe concrete weights (about x8) made to anchor our tents - we are not permitted to spike in the park. I could try and do them myself....but, well that could potentially be a small disaster and not a pretty sight....  If someone out there can make them on a schedule, we'll cover costs of materials, and be grateful for your contribution to our lovely neighbourhood farmers' market! Please contact us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or though this website. 

Perhaps you originally went to our dedicated site and this came up? 'Technical difficulties' and some reinvention, updating going on.  Thus, we direct you to home base - the Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park site to our original market page.  It's something good in the meantime and will be the place to get the lastest until we're back up.   Sorry for any inconvenience.  You can contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you to all that submitted to our first ever postcard design contest!  A special jury selected the top three designs.  These will go on to be posted to our facebook page for public 'weigh in' - aiming for March sometime, we'll send out notice.  The facebook 'like' results will be considered by the jury (different from top 3 jury) in selecting the winner.  Fun stuff.  Stay tuned people.
