Time to Grow

The Antigonish Farmers Market is the hub for healthy eating, home-grown food, and locally produced arts and crafts. Since its beginnings in 1995, the Market has become more successful with each year and now attracts well over 1,000 visitors on any given Saturday during the height of the season. But, it has outgrown its present location, and the modifications required to enlarge and bring the current building up to code and meet food safety regulations would be prohibitively expensive. The Landry 4-H Building has been a great home for more than 20 years but it is time to move on!

Our New Building Name

We can’t thank Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual Insurance enough, not only for their generous donation, but also for the weekly use of their boardroom and the many words of encouragement & leadership shown by their Board of Directors, management and staff.

We, as a company, believe very strongly in this project. Accordingly, our Board has approved a donation of $200,000 towards the construction of the new building. It gives us great pleasure to be the lead private sponsor of the new Farmers Market Building. It provides us with the opportunity to lend support to the farmers and community who have supported our Company for so many years. This is the largest single donation in our company’s history, which speaks to our belief in the importance of this project.

We Need Your Help

Raising the funds necessary for a year round structure is no small task and we can’t do it alone! We’ve partnered with local and provincial organizations and are continuing to connect with partners across the region. The pace is picking up and we’re seeing interest and support from across Eastern Nova Scotia and beyond – but it is only with your support that this project will truly succeed.

Online donations are now open!

With your help we can enhance the local food movement and the regional economy. In our new location, the AFM will continue to thrive and serve the community in many unique and exciting ways. The members, the vendors, the volunteers and the wider community of Antigonish and the surrounding areas thank you for generous support.

The Market Days for 2020 are delayed due to covid-19. We are running an online store starting April 27. Every week we have 25 plus vendors online providing locally home-grown vegetables, meats, baked goods and a variety of local arts and crafts. Register to shop online here.
