We are back for the 2017 season! Join us for fresh food and a good time.
June 16 - Special Father's Day Market
Weather permitting, there will be a Vintage Car Show at EFM this week. You can stroll around and see the incredible vehicles and discuss them with their owners.
For the Top Dad Contest, kids are invited to bring their story explaining why their Dad should win the contest. They will be invited to the microphone to read their stories at 5 pm. Dads don't have to be present to win. Top Dad receives a basket of products donated by the market vendors!
Entertainer Nicole Songbird Coward will provide music that day. Most of the usual products will be available.
We have a full schedule of special theme days and activities for 2017.
Eganville Farmers' Market is proud to offer fresh, locally produced products and you'll have the choice of selecting organic or not - just ask our vendors. They are happy to explain how things are done on their property. That's the added benefit to a farmers' market - you can meet the actual vendor, ask questions and make sure of what you are eating. This is important if you are concerned about healthy food.

Hot food was available - hot sausage, pancakes and syrup (beverages too)! The market celebrated Canada's Garden Days with a plant & seedling sale, as well as a book sale offering gardening-related books. Most of the usual products were available. Produce was limited to spring items, especially because warm weather was delayed this year.
