Farmers Market Latest News

Oh yes, we are having a postcard design contest for 2016 to recognize our 10th season - 2007 to 2016.  Time flies when your having fun and fun this contest is.  Last year's winner, Veronica Park, gave us a beautiful illustration that impressed us all.  Very excited to see what the 2016 contest brings us. The winning design may well be used for a few seasons and other purposes, so keep that in mind. The winner will receive 75 tbfm bucks to spend at any vendor for the 2016 market season.  An awesome credit line on the back and the sweet, sweet glory of bragging rights. note: 

Deadline is Sunday Nov. 29th, 2015 at 7pm. Drop off at our friends, the Tampered Press by or on the deadline.   The Tampered Press is only a drop off point and cannot supply any further information than what is on the spec sheet.  Which means, don't ask the busy barista ;-) Thanks.

Below is the attached spec sheet and pdf to download/print - please read thoroughly and heed the details.  

This postcard may well be used for a few seasons so keep that in mind ;-)

The photo below is of a male who tried to steal the hard earned cash of one of our farmers. Without the quick response and bold counter by the vendor, this guy would have gotten away with it.  The 14 Division police came quick, but he was gone by the time they arrived.  It was an upsetting incident. 

Please fellow farmers' market vendors, patrons, look out for him, he may be making the rounds.  He scopes out the stall, perhaps ones with only one person working at stall, hangs around the sides and back of stall, then goes for distraction. About 5ft 8in, 150 lbs.  At Trinty, he appeared to be working alone, but this is not confirmed.

The police are on the case, he is known, and has stolen from vendors at Wychwood barns. Thank you eveyone who shared/liked the post on the market facebook page - 101,568 people reached, 1137 shares as of today.  If you have any information to share with the police, call them and refer to 'Event #1057752'

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!
