Raise the Barn

BARN RAISING – a collective action of a community, in which a barn for one of the members is built or rebuilt collectively by members of the community

‘Raise the Barn’ is a market-led initiative that will see our seasonal ‘dome’ structure replaced with a state-of-the-art building that will offer many enhancements. These improvements will support our farmers, food producers and artisans while improving access to local food and food security in our community.

Hear From Our Vendors

This project is about far more than 4 walls and a roof. It is about people. It’s about our vendors and our community. We have a series of videos highlighting just some of our more than 140 vendors. You’ll hear from our farmers, from prepared food producers, vendors who have used the market to launch their business to the next level and been able to leave their full-time jobs to follow their dreams. They will all highlight how the New Glasgow Farmers Market has impacted them and what this new space will mean to them. Check back often to hear more stories.
