Main Farmer’s Market

We frequent the Main Farmer’s Market Saturday mornings. We love the idea of locally grown food and locally made product. It is a community run market, (which we really like) that we have watched grow.

The market’s goal is to expand the market-share of sustainably produced food and products, this includes local, organic and fairly traded food, plants and artisanal goods. They believe there are environmental, social and economic benefits to purchasing local food.

Initiated as a Sustainable Living Ottawa East pilot project in 2007 the market has become a pillar in the Old Ottawa East Community.
