****Market Relaunch****

***Sunday, May 21st, 2023***


* Every Sunday until October* 


To provide our community and surrounding township’s & First Nation’s with fresh, local, and real food supporting more sustainability within our communities as well as being environmentally friendly. Open a successful Farmers’ Market so local farmers, artisans and entrepreneurs can sell their goods, network and get their names out there. To support our local economy and making it more self-sustainable. To create jobs by supporting entrepreneurs on their endeavours, giving them experience and an idea of how their products sell. To create a sense of community and togetherness within Sheshegwaning. 


Sheshegwaning Farmers’ Market aims to provide fresh, local produce, meat, food etc, in a community based, friendly, and accessible environment. As well as being sustainable and better for the environment. We hope to expand year after year offering the best food, art and services available on the island. As well as provide local entrepreneurs and farms an outlet to sell to the open market. We aim to provide a more sustainable way of shopping for our community members by offering a closer destination which saves on gas. Supporting farmers and locally grown food not only supports the local economy but also saves TONS of fossil fuels, as food in Canada travels an average of 2,500 miles before making it on your plate and creates trash with extra packaging. Food at the farmers market is transported shorter distances and is generally grown using methods that minimize the impact on the earth. Meats, dairy and eggs found at farmers markets have been raised without hormones or antibiotics, have grazed on grass, eaten natural diets, and who have been spared the cramped and unnatural living conditions of feedlots and cages that are typical of animal agriculture. 

We provide our customers with a sense of community, even if they aren’t part of the same reserve, city or town. We see all of Manitoulin as one big community and anyone outside of the island is more than welcome! Customers can stroll amidst outdoor stalls of fresh produce, baked goods, prepared food and crafts on a sunny day instead of rolling carts around a grocery store with artificial lights. Coming to the farmers market makes shopping a pleasure rather than a chore. The farmers market is a community hub—a place to meet up with your friends and bring your children.
