The Ancaster Farmers’ Market’s community-central location in the Ancaster Village strives to provide farmers with an affordable local sales outlet and the community with access to fresh, local, naturally grown produce within walking or riding distance of many Ancaster neighbourhoods. The central location is designed to encourage bike and pedestrian traffic and reduce the use of cars to access quality food products.
For nearly two hundred years, Ancaster has been a strong and vibrant farming community. We celebrates our local heritage by bringing the farm community back to the Ancaster Village Core. Reestablished in June 2009 the Market started with just one organic vendor. By the end of that first season we had grown to fifteen weekly vendors.
The original location at the 1812 Barracks was rapidly outgrown. On August 19 2009, we moved behind John’s Anglican Church located at Halson and Wilson Street. In this lush park like setting patron numbers escalated to over 800 patrons each week.
