WEDNESDAYS 12-5 [ SPIRIT SQUARE | DOWNTOWN ]
ONLINE MARKET [ www.localline.ca/golden-farmers-market ]
"The Golden Farmers’ Market is a non-profit organization which was started by Lee Bedford (Canyon Creek Pottery) and Patty Nickisch (Patty’s Greenhouse) in 2007. This unique Market has become a regular summer fixture for both locals and tourists looking for an authentically Golden experience. The Saturday Spirit Square Market -near the world famous Timber Frame Pedestrian Bridge- was added to the schedule in June 2012, and although smaller in scale than the Wednesday market, it has became a popular Saturday stop during the summer season. There are also winter markets during the off-season; The December Christmas market is a very busy and successful market. Additional monthly markets run from February through April, with only a short hiatus before the start of the summer markets in mid-June."
The main purposes of the Golden Farmers' Market Society are:
a. To manage and operate a sustainable, self-supporting community market in Golden & Area A.
b. To support and promote a sustainable and vibrant local agricultural industry by providing an outlet for the sale of locally-grown and locally- raised/processed products, and by educating the community about agricultural opportunities throughout Golden & Area A.
c. To support and encourage local entrepreneurship by providing an outlet for the sale of Artisanal baking, foods, health and beauty, crafts and other fine art products, and provide opportunities for local musicians and other entertainers to perform.
d. To create a positive experience for people who come to the market, and to provide opportunities for local non-profit groups to tell their story, thereby contributing to a real sense of community in Golden and Area A.
