of the market!

The Farmers & Makers Market at cSPACE is operated by the Calgary Earth Market Society (CEMS), a vendor and community-based not-for-profit with a mission to create uniquely vibrant, culturally rich, authentically LOCAL Alberta Approved Farmers Markets.

Through CEMS, Market Members support and promote direct interactions between the best of Calgary and area small farmers, makers, bakers and growers and the communities we serve.

Our Market Friend Members provide much-needed support for our market operations. Proceeds raised from your annual Friends of the Market Membership will:
