Many of you may have seen or read about the latest CBC Marketplace piece exposing the third party selling that goes on in many farmers markets across the province. What you might not know is that the East Lynn Farmers Market is a verified market governed by Farmers Markets Ontario, which means only products grown by the farmers can be sold at our market.
Years ago FMO got into the business of farmers markets for this very reason and to protect farmers from third party selling. Today the East Lynn Farmers Market boasts a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses and baked goods that are grown and made by the farmers themselves. This allows the consumer to ask questions and develop a relationship directly with the farmer and gives the consumer a better idea of where their food comes from and how it is grown.
This is the second last week of the East Lynn farmers market so stock up for your Thanksgiving dinners and buy things to freeze! A big thank you to the community for making our market such a vibrant and successful market and a special thank you to all our volunteers who help feed the farmers and ensure each Thursday is a fabulous experience for all.
See you Thursday October 5th and Thursday October 12th from 3-7pm in East Lynn Park.
