The Christmas Market

 Welcome to our annual Christmas Market! A festive event that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit with a wide array of products made by real local producers! We’d like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you, our loyal customers and friends, who continue to support our market after 25 years. On behalf of all of our vendors we’d like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2016! Also be sure to enter our 50/50 draw and Gift Basket draw filled with items donated by our vendors! Ballots for both of these draws are available in the Rotunda of the Exhibit Hall at our Hostess Booth.

The Carp Farmers’ Market is the largest producer based Farmers’ Market in Eastern Ontario! The Market is open every Saturday from May until the end of October from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine. Entrance and parking are free and the market is wheelchair-accessible.

West Carleton Food Access Center

This past season, the Market dedicated all of its fundraising initiatives towards the West Carleton Food Access Center, which supports local area families in need. Thanks to all of your generosity throughout 2015, we’ve raised over $2000! We hope to continue this generosity into next season but would like to send out a huge thank you to each and every one of you who helped us reach this amazing milestone this season! Stay tuned to our social media sites in the next few weeks for our grand total donation!
