BACKGROUND WEST END FARMERS MARKET
The residents of the West end of Kingston have approached their councilors and have demonstrated a real interest in a west end Farmers Market. As a result I was approached by Councilors Lisa Osanic, Rob Matheson and Terry Shea to take on this task as there is a real need for a Farmers Market in the west end of Kingston.
As a result of my search for a location I approached the Kingston Shriners and they fully support a Farmers market on their property.
The west end is a very high density population area and a Market should do exceptionally well here, and could very well expand in the future to several days a week if supported and we can encourage enough Farmers and Producers to come, they could do very well indeed.
Vendors are needed starting on 24 May 2009. The following are the pertinent details:
WHERE -- corner of Princess St (Hwy 2) and Collins Bay road;
DATES --24 May - 25 October 2009 inclusive;(approximate dates every year)
TIMINGS -- 8 AM to 2 PM on Sundays; (set up would take place between 8 and 9 with the Market officially starting at 9)
RATES -- $25.00 for a single 10 X 24 stall and $40.00 for a double. There will be a special rate until the end of June which is, $15.00 and $30.00 respectively. Once established there will be seasonal rates offered at a more attractive price and Vendors can select their location on a first come first served basis and will be assured of the same location each week. These fees will be collected by the Shriners;
WHO CAN APPLY -- only Farmers, Growers and Producers who grow/produce 80% of what they sell.
Washrooms are available on site for vendors. There is considerable free parking for customers also. We will have the use of the Shriners sign on the road to advertise and advertising will also be done in the local papers and the media.
