VFM Boot Camp
This January, seven brand new vendor hopefuls will compete each week in VFM’s Boot Camp at the Winter Markets to see who comes out on top and secures a spot as a permanent market vendor!
Each Boot Camp contestant will have two Saturdays at the Riley Park Farmers Market (Winter Edition) and two Sundays at the Hastings Park Winter Farmers Market to show market shoppers their stuff. It’s up to you, dear shoppers to decide who wins, so come out and vote for your favourite! *Voting takes place at the Market Info Booth*.
