An end of season Thank You! From your friends at the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market

 

Sadly, the 2014 season at the Haliburton County Farmers Market is coming to a close. Please join us for the final Market in Carnarvon this Friday, October, 10th from 1 p.m to 5 p.m.  Looking back, it has been a busy and wonderful season. We would like thank all of the vendors, our customers, and our volunteers for your enthusiasm and support. All of you truly made this season the success that it was.

Please continue to visit us here at our website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages for market related news, recipes, and updates.

We’re seeking #volunteers in #myhaliburtonhighlands! Can you lend a helping hand?

1335456801_volunteers2The 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: incrediblehcfma@gmail.com  (or) Tel. 705.306.0523 

Thank you!
