The Farmers & Makers Market is proud to serve as a small business incubator and champion for the many wonderful local farms, nurseries, bakeries, meat and seafood providers, cheese makers, specialty food producers, artists and makers, vintners, brewers and distillers our area has to offer. Every vendor is carefully screened with a commitment to creating a diverse marketplace with the highest quality locally produced products available.
Our founding market vendors and community supporters have established the Calgary Earth Market Society, becoming Calgary’s first “by-vendors, for-vendors” Farmers’ Market. Successful applicants to the market become voting members in this Society; and active voices in growing the success of their individual businesses along with market as a whole.
