To all our customers and market supporters,
As another successful market season comes to an end, we can’t help but look back and appreciate the amazing support we have gotten during the past year from you, our customers.
The market continues to grow in size and even though it has not been the best of growing seasons, our vegetable producers were amazing by continually supplying the market with an abundance of locally grown produce. They are already making plans to expand & have vegetables available for when we open year-round.
This year also saw the addition of fresh meat and a dedicated egg producer at the market. In total, we have approximately 16 full time farmers at our market. That is an impressive number! It is inspiring to see the young take up the challenge of growing food locally and have the market as an outlet for what they produce.
You’ll have noticed that the erection of the new Farmers’ Market building has begun, all made possible with the support and generosity of the local community. To date, funds raised through activities, the generosity of our customers, local business’ and the Town and County, has reached $768,319.84 of our $800,00 goal. We appreciate and thank everyone of you for generosity, without you, this would not be possible.
The Board of the Antigonish Farmers’ Market and all our vendors would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, may the spirit of the season bring you warmth and happiness and all the best for 2020.
After this Saturday, our last market for 2019, we look forward to seeing you again the first Saturday in May, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, in our new home.
