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!

Why A New Building?

  • We need room for more vendors
  • It will allow us to have a year-round market
  • Will be open for more than one day a week
  • A Provincially Inspected, Commercial kitchen available
    for broad based community usage
  • Increased access to local food and healthy eating
  • Encourage the development of more small farms,
    local artisans and food vendors.
  • Will serve as an incubator for new small business
  • Will have a greatly increased economic impact.

A Part of Your Community

The total economic impact of the Market on Antigonish and the surrounding communities is estimated to be over $1.6 million. The Market serves as a small business incubator for new start-ups, many of which have gone on to build successful large-scale businesses.

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.
