This season, we are happy to announce our new Farmers’ Market collaborators, featuring local artisans and producers! Plus, for the very first year, the market will take place on the new pedestrian street directly in front of Santropol Roulant. You can join the City’s official inauguration of the pedestrian street on June 22 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
Stemming from the importance of nurturing local economies, and building healthier ecosystems and communities, we will collaborate with artisans and producers who use in large part ecological products made or harvested nearby. Depending on the day and point in the season, different artisans and producers will have products available at the market.
