Consumers want MORE from the Saskatoon Farmers' Market
Saskatoon Farmers' Market is brimming full of untapped potential. As we celebrate it's 40th year anniversary the need to keep the market growing and progressive has never been more relevant.
Currently, the Farmers' Market building is open 6 days a week (Tuesday - Sunday) but you will only see a range of vendors half of this time. That's right, on only three of six days (Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday) are local merchants and farmers available. What you will find the other half of the time is a restaurant, a bakery and one store and a very vacant building.
There is increasing pressure from the City of Saskatoon for the Farmers' Market to perform better. The area surrounding The Farmers' Market is bustling with new growth in businesses and expensive condos. It has been said that if the growing needs of this area are not met the City may decide to re-evaluate their valuable property and potentially relocate or replace the Saskatoon Farmer' Market.
Would you like a well stocked market open 6 days a week where you could get all your essential Market needs? Please help us send a message of the desire for growth and progress to the Saskatoon Farmers Market Board. Please sign and support this petition to have:
- Full access to the building 6 days / wk
- A variety of 12-24 vendors available 6 days / wk
(including local artisans, Meat producers and Farmers of fresh produce)
