The Rockwood Farmers’ Market is much more than a place to buy local products.
Build Community: The Rockwood Farmers’ Market (RFM) is a place to bring the family, gather with friends, catch up with neighbours, and enjoy being part of the community of Rockwood! Enjoy some live music, eat some local food, and do your shopping all in one place.
Shop Local/Support Local: The RFM supports local businesses and provides a venue for Rockwood residents and visitors to purchase directly from local growers, producers, and makers. We seek out the nearest producer to Rockwood that we can find for each product, with a few specialty products coming from slightly farther afield if they are not available locally.
Business Development: The RFM support local entrepreneurs, and acts as an incubator for business ideas. Many businesses have started at the Farmers’ Market, testing products before further expanding into the community and beyond. We also support young entrepreneurs through our Youth Vendor Program.
Community Table: We reserve one table each week for a not-for-profit community group to reach out to their community.
