Downtown Farmers Market

EACH WEEK AT THE MARKET: 25+ farms and producers, food and coffee trucks

You’ve got three more chances to stock up on the fresh stuff, support local producers & trade in a magnet for $5. Beat the line-ups and enjoy the laid-back vibe the Downtown Farmers Market offers right in the heart of the City! 

Look out for VFM’s colourful fridge magnets adorning lamp posts, doorways, and newspaper boxes downtown from now until October 4 – they’re good for a $5 Market Money token at the Downtown Farmers Market.

The magnet, designed by local illustrator Holly Cruise, can be traded in for a wooden token worth $5 in market product for the rest of the Downtown market season – that can buy you anything from a pint of local tomatoes to a loaf of artisan bread or food truck snack!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Hunt for a magnet – hint: they’re downtown (200 if them!)
  2. Bring it to the Downtown Farmers Market between now and October 4, 2018 and we’ll give you a $5 Market Money token, good for anything at the market. And yes, you can keep the magnet.
  3. Contest valid for one magnet/token per shopper.
  4. Contest expires October 4, 2018, but you’re welcome to keep the magnet on your fridge forever!
