The Huntingdon County Farmer’s Market is pleased to announce a Christmas Market on December 6th, 2020 at the Ormstown Recreation Centre in a brand-new, COVID-proof format.

For the past 13 years, the Christmas Market has provided an opportunity for the residents of the Chateauguay Valley and beyond to connect with over 40 exceptional local exhibitors under one roof for the holiday season. Thanks to a unique ”no-resale” policy, the market has been attracting more and more people from Montreal’s South Shore looking for only 100% local products.

Given the impossibility of holding a traditional indoor market due to the current pandemic, the Market will instead help people connect with producers via the internet. The Market’s facebook page will allow people to easily find exhibitors to place orders directly as of November 20th, while the Rec Centre will serve as a central, secure, contactless pick-up point on December 6, 2020, from 10 am to 3 pm.

To register as a producer, please fill out the form below.

April 23rd: Farmers’ Market AGM and potluck

The Farmers’ Market will hold it’s AGM on Tuesday, April 23rd, and you’re invited.

The annual general meetingis a democratic process where members can vote on various aspects of governance, but it’s also a time to discover great new ideas for the themes and the weekly activities of the upcoming the summer markets (starting May 22nd)!

It’s a reflection of the participatory approach of the Farmer’s Market, which is first and foremost a meeting place for local producers and local people. It’s therefore fitting that farmers, artisans, and citizens of all kinds should have the opportunity to participate in the programming.

In order to encourage participation, the market is hosting a potluck-style buffet of savoury local fare, as well as beverages from local producers. 

Two producer positions and one citizen position will be up for election to the Board of administrators.
