A community initiative
It takes a community to build a market
This market relies on the support of many. In this section, you will find information about:
- The community members who set up and currently oversee the market
- The market friends – businesses and individuals providing in-kind support
And because ‘our community’ includes the natural environment, you can also read about:
Our Vision: A local sustainable economy that strengthens community connection and environmental stewardship.
Our Mission: To be a well-run, financially secure and community-supported group that provides a platform for environmental and community initiatives, built around an inclusive farmers’ market of ecological farmers, food artisans and artists.
We would like to acknowledge that Withrow Park and the Farmers’ Market is situated upon traditional territories. The territories include the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations. We also recognize the enduring presence of First Nation peoples on this land.
The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Toronto Purchase and applies to lands east of Brown’s Line to Woodbine Avenue and north towards Newmarket.
