On our 28th Birthday

As we celebrate our 28th Birthday we'd like to thank all of you for continuing to shop local. Your support means the world to our group of 90+ local vendors who work tirelessly to make, bake or grow what they sell each and every Saturday.

Since our Market was established in 1990, our founder, the late Hildegarde Anderson, strived to have a producer only farmers' market. Producer only means that reselling of any kind is NOT permitted at our market. Each one of our hand selected vendors must produce what they sell.

For 28 years we have worked hard to maintain that standard and are so thankful that you continue to show up every Saturday (even when it's raining and cold outside!) So as we celebrate this milestone today we'd like to thank you once again for all of your support. We can't wait to see you again soon at the Carp Farmers' Market.


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.
