We are back at the Guelph Farmers’ Market for 2023!
In 2022, 10C assumed direction of operating the Guelph Farmers’ Market, with a goal of revitalizing the space. We hope to help in their mission of improving Farmers’ Market access for everyone. We loved hosting a booth at the Market last year and are so excited to be back!
The Farmers’ Market will be open every Saturday from May 6 to October 28, with updated hours this season of 8am-1pm. Our booth will be there each and every week!
Right now, about 15% of households in Guelph can’t access the food they need. Our booth utilizes sliding-scale prices to help those in our community access healthy food. You pay what you choose, no questions asked. Whatever feels right for you! Our evaluations have shown that sliding scale pricing works. It helps to reduce food insecurity while allowing everyone, at all income levels, to participate in our system with confidence, dignity, and equity of access. If you pay above the minimum price it helps to sustain our project and support our mission building a community where everyone has access to healthy food. We want you to be an active part of the solution.
We take great pride in creating beautiful, cheerful atmospheres, with high quality fresh food, a welcoming place to hang out, and excellent service. Making people feel good ties into our values of alleviating stigma. The Farmers’ Market has been an excellent place for us to create this welcoming environment!
We will be reselling fruits and vegetables, both local and not, as well as baked goods from our Upcycle Kitchen, Souper Hero dry soup mixes, and packaged bulk foods. We can’t wait to see you there!
