The Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market is a volunteer run organization, incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2010.
There are many ways you can help support the continuing success of this community run market.
VOLUNTEER! Bring the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market to life by helping to set up or take down each market day or organize and run our special events. This is a great opportunity for high-school students looking to fulfill their volunteer hours.
For those looking to contribute in a different capacity, please inquire about potential openings on our volunteer Board of Directors. Fresh ideas and new skillsets are always welcome and appreciated as we continually look for ways to improve the market and continue to meet the demand of local residents.
For more information, please contact us by email.
BECOME A VENDOR! We are always looking for a variety of vendors to join our family of market vendors! We accept farm, food and handmade vendors, and appreciate any opportunity to connect with local small businesses throughout the region and surrounding areas. Average foot traffic at our market ranges from 700-800 visitors per week, although we have exceeded 1,500 visitors on special event days. We accept full-time, part-time and occasional vendors across a number of product categories and are always looking to expand our vendor roster with new and unique products. As a community-run market, our rates are some of the lowest in the area for comparable vendor events, while still offering valuable exposure for registered vendors through print & digital advertisements, as well as other subsidized programs organized by the market committee.
DONATE! We gratefully accept donations of supplies and financial contributions to help improve the market for everyone. As a registered not-for-profit organization, the market is made possible by a small group of community-minded volunteers with limited funding in the form of community grants from local government. If you wish to contribute, please contact us by email for any donations of supplies & materials. Monetary donations can be dropped in the wooden donation box at the market, with cheques made payable to Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market Association. Thank you so much for your support!
