Please NOTE the Farmers' & Makers market has been suspended due to COVID-19 Until the 2021 outdoor season. As such we will not be taking Vendor applications until spring 2021.

Stay Safe Calgary!
Dear valued customers,
After much deliberation, the CEMS Board of Directors have come to the difficult decision to continue the closure of the Farmers' & Makers Market at cSPACE until the Outdoor Season of 2021.
With the health and safety of our customers, vendors and staff being our first priority, and given the fact that we are a small, not for profit, primarily volunteer run organization, we simply could not provide anything close to the market environment that you have all come to know and love while implementing the health and safety guidelines provided by the Alberta Government.
Given that this is the case we have chosen to wait things out so we can come back at a time when we can do what we do best, bring people together.
During the closure many of our vendors and farmers are doing delivery and they need your support and patronage now more than ever. Please visit our Vendor page and connect with them directly to get your fresh, locally grown and made products delivered straight to your doorstep!
Thank you so much for your support and understanding. We know how much this market means to all of us. Lets stay strong and connected so we can all meet again when the time is right.
Stay safe Calgary.
