Wednesday is market day in Kentville! Year-round our vendors bring folks to the downtown to buy fresh farm products, baked goods, lunch food, crafts and more. Customer surveys show that folks who visit the market do some, most, or all of their additional shopping in Kentville on Wednesdays because they come for the farmers market! Farmers markets help revitalize downtown areas and generate substantial spin-off business for other downtown merchants on market day and over time. Communities in Kings County benefit from the Kentville Farmers Market too! Farmers, traders and artisans at the market come from towns and villages outside Kentville to meet their customers and sell their goods.
The success of farmers markets and the local food movement is rooted in our ability to offer up what our customers (and yours) seek most, a real connection to small business owners and producers who are our friends and neighbours. These are relationships based on trust and quality products and service. We stand for that, and we think you do too!
Being able to demonstrate your support for these priorities, as well as the vendors and customers who care about locally-grown and locally-produced products can help align you with these customers and create tremendous goodwill for your company or organization.
We’d like to ask you to join us in the successful community-building phenomenon we are creating on Wednesdays at the Kentville Farmers Market by becoming an Official Market Sponsor!
