About Our Market
Our mission is to promote community, local food and agricultural products through regular dynamic farmers markets. Our weekly market is an important venue for the community to connect with our local food producers! Of our 20+ vendors, 15 are from Canterbury itself, with the remainder of our vendors being located within 25 miles of Canterbury town center!
We have been in business for about 13 years since we first started out in 2006. We have grown so much since then!
We have a great selection of pasture raised meats, seasonal fruits, greens & veggies, local honey & maple products, baked goods, ready-to-eat, plus selected crafts. We work to keep a balance between delicious edibles and beautifully hand-made items.
