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/lawn sign distrubution, painting, handy work, etc.) The market really is a collaborative effort and many of our local community members have made some awesome contributions over the years.  And we are so grateful for their generousity - you'all know who I'm talking to!

 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 2016 postcard design contest has been cancelled.  Fear not, we will have our current design, see below, revamped by Veronica Park, the original artist who will do something special for us to reflect the 10th year of the market.

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.
