An FYI from the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market to interested farmers and growers.
We are currently and actively seeking agricultural vendors near the Haliburton Highlands for both of our market locations!
Agricultural products consist of items such as fruits & vegetables, minimally processed meats, maple syrup, etc.
Interested parties should contact the market manager, Gailon Valleau at: – Tel: 705-306-0523

Our vendor applications can be found at this LINK – Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you!
The Haliburton County Farmers’ Market was founded 6 years ago by local food activists and local growers.
We have two locations – Head Lake Park – Tuesdays starting May 20, 12 – 4pm, and Carnarvon – Fridays 1 – 5pm beside Rhubarb Restaurant – starting June 20th.
There is no question that an essential component in our success has been the generous support of volunteers! (The failure rate for farmers’ markets is very high – up to 50% in the first 5 years.)
We need and welcome volunteers to help at the market. Tasks include counting patrons, helping with events, (like our gardening and cookbook swap), assisting with parking, or giving a hand with set up and take-down of tents.
If you’re interested in volunteering and helping local growers & producers, all of which brings benefits to our community, please contact our Market Manager, Gailon Valleau at: firstname.lastname@example.org (or) Tel. 705.306.0523
Spring is just just around the corner and the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market will be upon us before we know it!

This coming Friday, October 11th marks the last date for the Haliburton County Farmer’s Market, where all of our wonderful vendors will be closing their tent flaps for 2013. It’s been another ‘incrEdible’ market season, and you can count on us being back when the seedlings sprout anew and another growing season is once again upon us. Look for us next year in both the Village of Haliburton and in Carnarvon. Check our website, ‘like’ our Facebook page, and follow our Twitter site for recipes, information, as well as updates about the 2014 season.
Friday is the last chance visitors will have to stock-up on Thanksgiving goodies from the market, (including cranberries!), so consider joining us in Carnarvon, between 1 and 5 p.m. where we’re proud to offer a Kimchee demonstration, presented by Carolyn Langdon.
On behalf of the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market Board members and both market managers, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone very much for their support, encouragement and patronage this year. Not only was the Carnarvon Market once again an unequivocal success, 5 years and counting, but the market in the Village of Haliburton more than surpassed all of our expectations, and we’re looking forward to doing it all over again next year!
Join us at the market in Carnarvon tomorrow, Friday, October 4th, from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., and the Village of Haliburton, Tues. Oct. 8th, 12 p.m – 4 p.m., where we’ll have fresh cranberries, as well as 3 different kinds of apples, (see below), available for sale while supplies last!
The apples were freshly picked today at Homestead Orchards. You can’t get much fresher than that! The Cranberries are fresh from Johnstons’s Cranberry Marsh.
We also welcome Janine Papadopoulos who will be in Carnarvon tomorrow, and in the Village of Haliburton on Tuesday, October 8th, sharing her great ideas and recipes for using cranberries! Come on out, learn a few new techniques and have some fun!
