Antigonish Farmers’ Market is going online.
We will begin taking orders online and by phone starting April 27 for order pickup on May 2. To order please go to our websites “Shop Online” page. You can register for online shopping here.
We will also be taking phone orders for those that have no interent. More details to come.
Ordering will begin each week starting Monday mornings at 5am and will close Thursday afternoons at 5pm. This will allow our vendors to compile your orders for pickup. Pickup times will be between 10am and 1pm Saturdays. We will send you an email confirmation Friday with your assigned pickup time. Please come at your aloted time so we can minimize the number of people onsite. When you arrive at the old 4H barn please park in a numbered stall and call or text the manager at (902) 867-7479 to let us know you have arrived. Open your trunk and we will drop your order in it. Please stay in your vehicle so that we can observe recommeded distancing rules.
More details to come. Check back often for updates.
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 your generous support.
The Market runs every Saturday from May 4th through until December 21st during 2019. Every week we have 50 plus vendors on site providing locally home-grown vegetables, meats, baked goods and a variety of local arts and crafts. Come listen to local musicians while enjoying a variety of local foods cooked on site and socializing with your friends and neighbors.
