Welcome to our fairgrounds and the third year of the Hants County Farmers’ Market (HCFM).
We are excited to once again host this weekly event.
In offering a dedicated space for our vendors, we hope to engage with our community while gathering at a accessible location.
The Hants County Ex Farmers’ Market at the Fairgrounds is a project of the Windsor Agricultural Society, a not for profit organization dedicated to agricultural awareness for West Hants and surrounding areas.
As we continue to embrace the principles of “make it, bake it, grow it”, we invite our community to come together and share in our regions bountiful bread basket. We hope you will join us for a successful 2023 Farmers’ Market season. On behalf of the Windsor Agriculture Society, we thank you for your continued support of our fairgrounds.
The market began in 2021 and is a member of the Farmers’ Markets of Nova Scotia Cooperative Ltd. The mission of the Market is to provide a direct market venue for producers of local goods and services to engage with the community in a convenient and accessible location.
The Fairgrounds are home to the Oldest Agricultural Fair in North America. The first fair was held at Fort Edward in 1765 on the only passable road from Halifax. It was in essence, a farmers’ market with vendors selling products grown in what was known as the province’s “bread basket”.
If you would like to be a vendor, please email an application.
See you on Thursday evenings June through October!
