2019 Sponsorship Opportunities

Our Market

The Bradford Farmers’ Market has been a fixture in our community since 2008, and 2019 marks the eighth year that the market has been run by the vendors for the people of our community.  You’ll find it on Saturday mornings in the parking lot of the beautiful Bradford West Gwillimbury Library and Cultural Centre.  The market runs from the end of May until Thanksgiving weekend and it also offers four indoor markets before Christmas. 

Our Success

We are proud of our continued growth each year, with an estimated 20,000 customers visiting us during the 2018 season.  Our market days feature live, local music, monthly events (like our Caribbean Festival, Butter Tart Festival, Harvest Festival and new this year, Family Carnival) and we offer activities for children.  Our market is a great place to shake the hand of the person who grows or prepares your food, to meet up with friends and to dine in the sunshine.  Sponsoring our market links your business to a strong community event that supports the local economy. 

Our Mandate

The Bradford Farmers’ Market’s goals are to grant the residents of BWG and surrounding areas access to a viable farmers’ market in their own community; to provide a venue for local producers, farmers and artisans to sell and showcase their products; to promote healthy local living; to offer volunteer opportunities; and to engage local groups, musicians, organizations and foundations operating in the community.  We invite you to join us in making our 2019 season our best year yet! 

What We Sell

Our dedicated farmers, producers, bakers, cooks and crafters provide our community with produce from the Holland Marsh and surrounding areas, honey products (edible and skin creams), maple products (from syrup to sauces), Heritage beef, locally roasted coffee, teas and fresh drinks, garden plants, herbs, Ontario cheese and yogurt, breads, bagels, pretzels, squares, cookies, eggs, prepared foods, pies and tarts, jams, pierogies, cakes, cabbage rolls, bbq and crafts.
