Shopping at our Farmers Markets is a healthy decision not only for you, but for our community's economy as well. For every dollar spent at our Market, another two dollars ripple through the provincial economy. In Ontario alone, sales at Farmers Market total almost $500 million, leading to an economic impact of an astounding $1.5 billion!
For every one person you see working at the Market, another two are busy at work back home. As many as 27,000 people in Ontario are directly involved in preparing and selling the products you find at the Market. Furthermore, Farmer Markets are good for other businesses too, Studies show that 60 to 70 percent of market-goers visit neighbouring businesses on their way to and from the market.
We thank Lion Manny Castellino for his many years served as Manager or our Lions Farmers maket and we welcome Lion Pawan Dewett as Market Manager effective November 2019.
