The vendor line up for 2017 is complete. Vendor inquires will have a limited response.
Participation at Trinity is by invitation season to season. Prior to each season, market management extends invitations to returning vendors and if space availability permits, potential new vendors. There is scant turnover. Trinity is a modest sized community based, functional farmers' market and our vendor count is limited. It is not about increasing vendors season to season, nor if a food is not represented it should be included. It is about maintaining the market integrity - local agriculture - quality over quantity. And keeping it viable for participating vendors. Minding our footprint on the green space is also important. The vendor line up is curated for diversity and overall balance based on our mandate and to maintain our farmers' market designation.
All participating vendors have gone through an application/approval process and sign an agreement in order to participate. Vendors cannot participate without prior approval by market management.
We do not keep a waiting list, nor have a online 'vendor interest' form at this time - hopefully soon! Vendor inquiries can be sent via the contact page. Indicate if you are a farmer, growing practices, social media links, product details etc. In the event, only vendors of interest will be contacted.
Vendors that use synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or products containing GMO’s, or are re-sellers/peddlers, or purchase at the Food Terminal or import goods are not considered. Non-food or pet food vendors are not considered.
