Farmers' Market Mandate
"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 Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market 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 part time, volunteer and seasonal work for management. Your email will be returned at our earliest convenience. Thank you in advance for your patience.
Check out Toronto Farmers Market Network and Farmers Markets Ontario . These websites list all farmers' markets in T.O. and Ontario respectfully.
To futher our commitment to the environment we have a 'leave a bag/take a bag' program. Bring in your clean re-useable shopping bags for others to use, take a bag if you forget yours. You can keep the bag or return it. No worries. We will be encouraging our vendors to reduce the offer of plastic bags. The aim is to be a plastic-bagless farmers' market!
Reduce / Reuse / Recycle, in that order folks.
