Profile Last Updated: March 18, 2008
The Cochrane Farmers’ Market is organized and operated by volunteers working for the Cochrane Environment Action Committee (CEAC), and proceeds from the operation go to support the activities of CEAC in its efforts to increase environmental awareness in the community. Vendors at the Market must register with CEAC. Priority is given to vendors of locally handcrafted or grown products. Imported and commercial items are not encouraged.
What You Will Find There
The Market has thirty spaces for display and sale of wares. The vendors at the Market vary somewhat from year to year. New vendors are always encouraged to join the Market, so the products on offer might vary from week to week. Typically you will be able to purchase baked items such as pies, cakes, and cookies; locally produced jams and jellies; arts and crafts of many descriptions; lawn ornaments; jewelry items; free-range eggs; locally produced honey; soups and sauces; dried flowers; sausages and other meat products; and locally grown fruits and vegetables.
