Calling all vegetable gardeners!
We’re having an ‘Oddest Looking Vegetable Contest’ at the market! Bring your oddest/funniest/silliest looking vegetables to the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market tent, (at either market location), on or before July 29th.
Judging will take place at the Head Lake market location in the Village of Haliburton on Tuesday, July 29th
Prizes to be announced soon! (Fresh vegetables only please!)
Join us in the Village of Haliburton, at Head Lake Park to celebrate the market’s 2014 season opener!
12 p.m. to 4 p.m. today!!
We’ll have Celtic music to enjoy, loyalty cards at the HCFM booth, (first come first served), and all of your favourite vendors will be there!
We look forward to seeing you soon.
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: email@example.com (or) Tel. 705.306.0523
