I am happy to share that Village Square Park located at Abbott Street and Stittsville Main Street is in the process of acquiring a Farmer’s Market.
The market will be operated by Ottawa Farmers’ Markets as they have expressed an interested in expanding their markets in the City and would work with local farmers and residents in the operation of a market in Stittsville. The idea of a Farmers’ Market in Stittsville has been raised in the past and there have been some markets in the past in the community. The suggestion of Village Square Park as a location came forward when the Ottawa Farmers’ Market approached me with the idea to operate a market in this location. I am very pleased with this proposal and look forward to market making its roots in Stittsville.
The Market is planned to open toward the end of June with more details to be released in my electronic newsletter as they come.
In the meantime, interested vendors are encouraged to visit http://ottawafarmersmarket.ca/about/become-a-vendor/ for more information on how to apply. Interested volunteers can also visit http://ottawafarmersmarket.ca/get-involve/
I would like to thank the Ottawa Farmer’s Market for looking at Stittsville to set up market and wish them the best of luck moving forward as I believe it is a great use of venue and results should be fruitful!
