The Market Experience

Since we lost our restaurant customer, The Courtyard, we have been attempting to make up lost sales through alternate sales channels. We attempted opening a farm store and attending two markets: Stittsville and Quartier Vanier. Although the Stittsville Market showed great potential, it was not as lucrative as the Quartier Vanier Farmer’s Market. We have therefore decided to forgo our attendance there. I wish best of luck to the other vendors, and invite Stittsville residents to visit this very new market.

We have instead decided to maintain a solid presence at the Quartier Vanier Farmer’s Market. This vibrant new market is a recent initiative by the Vanier Business Improvement Association. They are very organized and dedicated to making this market a premier destination for residents of Vanier, Overbrook, New Edinburgh, Rockliffe and Sandy Hill. Here you will find vegetables, meats, baked goods, preserves, tea, garlic and more! Every week features musical entertainment and a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Visit us soon!

Our very own farm store has been also doing very well! Although sales are still quite small, this is a fantastic new development project. Every week the store becomes more sophisticated as we learn what appeals to our customers, and what makes the self-serve purchase happen easily. I hope to dedicate more energy into the farm store next year and offer a full line of farm grown vegetables!
