Welcome to the Eganville Farmers' Market
Eganville Farmers' Market is proud to offer fresh, organic, locally produced products - 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.
Market Location and Hours
The market is located at Legion Memorial Field in Eganville across from St. James Catholic Church and on the same grounds as the Eganville Curling Club, ball diamonds, soccer field and tennis court.
Hours: 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. every Friday from June 10 to October 7.
Final Market Day for 2016 season - Friday, October 7
Happy Thanksgiving!!! Come to our Thanksgiving market and see the GIANT pumpkin weighing 1143 pounds. Take your picture with this beauty! Grower Ryan Hoelke will be creating a website soon for auctioning it off along with two other MUCH larger pumpkins.
Speaking of pumpkins, we have regular pumpkins and pumpkin pie!
Garlic and Herb Day plus a return performance by Nicole Coward - Sept. 30
If you are a lover of garlic and/or herbs, you shouldn't miss this day at the market. There will be fresh and pickled garlic and many other items containing garlic. As for herbs, they will be offered fresh and included in many, many products too - teas, tinctures, seasonings, salsa and other sauces, bread, pickles, and in the prepared frozen pierogies and ravioli. Even some soaps have a lovely trace of herbs. There's much more!
We are also happy to announce that Toronto folksinger/songwriter/guitarist Nicole Coward is returning for another performance at the Market. Drop by between 2 and 6 pm, sit back in a comfortable chair and enjoy! Her July 29th appearance was a big hit and we hope those fans return with their friends.
August 12 - Backwoods Country Market Day
We celebrated the outdoors and the recreational activities enjoyed in Renfrew County such as hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, 4-wheeling, whitewater rafting, fishing, hunting or any other passion. If you spend time at the cottage, cabin or camp, this event was for you. A fun market and the vendors came up with some new and innovative products for your outdoor adventures:
- baked beans & pickled eggs for your hunt camp - or anytime
- campfire & BBQ food (bacon, sausage, smoked sausage, pancakes, pure maple syrup)
- fresh vegetables & fruit, including blueberries
- delicious snacks (fruit strap, granola bars, beef jerky)
- natural bug repellent
- bio-degradable soap and shampoo
- lots more - check out the camo gifts for Christmas stockings!
Eganville's Lending Hub was on site that day with recreational items they lend to visitors & residents (kayaks, bikes, paddleboards, etc). This program is FREE for everyone!
July 29 - Junior Vendors Day
Young vendors, aged 18 and under, joned the regular vendors in offering their homegrown or homemade items for sale. This was a great experience for our next generation of vendors. It was the second time we've organized this and hope it can be an annual event.
Also that day - Toronto folk singer, songwriter, guitarist Nicole performed several sets of beautiful music. She made Eganville a stop on her summer tour and everyone enjoyed her music.
