Amherstburg Farmers Market 2020
October 31, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm
Celebrating their 10th year the Amherstburg Farmers Market runs for the 2020 season at their new location at GL Heritage Brewing Company from 8:30am-1:30pm every Saturday between May 16 & October.
The market season is set to start with opening day on Saturday, May 16th.
The Amherstburg Farmers’ Market is a weekly rural market for local farm, agricultural, prepared food, and craft products. Many weekends, the market will host community events that focus on healthy eating, and promote local businesses and attractions.
Each week will showcase approximately 20 high-quality vendors featuring produce and crafted products from Essex County. You will have access to fresh seasonal vegetables, fruit, herbs, fresh-cut flowers; fresh fish, cured and smoked fish, sausages and meats; home-made pies, cookies and breads; craft beer and wines; locally made candies, baked goods, jams and preserves; natural-made products such as soaps, candles, pottery and artwork. The Amherstburg Farmers Market and GL Heritage will also host local talent and family-friendly attractions featured on different weekends.
The Farmer’s Market was formerly located at the “Little White Church” since 2008 but was forced to relocated to Toddy Jones Park in 2019 when the town sold the property.
Amherstburg’s first full-service craft brewery, GL Heritage Brewing Company, is an agricultural-based, small batch, and local family-run brewery. It is located a convenient 200m from the former market location known as the landmark ‘Little White Church’. Recognized for its deliberate focus on local collaboration and high-quality artisan offerings, GL Heritage Brewery is expected to make the ideal partner for the small town, community-based Amherstburg Farmers Market.
Applications for vendors are still being accepted. Creative and imaginative vendors with expertise in their craft, whether it be growing things or making things, are encouraged to apply. If you are interested in being featured at the 2020 Amherstburg Farmers Market, please contact Rita at firstname.lastname@example.org for the vendor package.
This community farmers market is a great opportunity to buy local, support your neighbours and get access to fresh and healthy food, as well as unique, quality-made items you won’t find in stores. Come out this market season to meet the friendly folks who make the Amherstburg Farmers Market feel like home.
