The popular market will return for its seventh season on Sunday, May 28th and run every Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm until the end of October in the parking lot at St. Lawrence College.

Over 40 vendors are expected to take part in the market this season and organizers are planning a number of special events throughout the season to bring some added excitement to the market.

“We are all about local – local food, local farmers, local craftspeople and artisans,” said Kinsmen Club member and market organizer Neil Benjamin. “The market is a great experience for residents and visitors who want to enjoy products that are grown and made right here in Cornwall and SDG Counties.”

Benjamin said they expect to have more than 40 vendors at the market this year, with some appearing weekly and others every two weeks. That includes a mix of non-growers and growers selling a wide variety of products ranging from produce and meats to jams, prepared foods, coffee, honey, baked goods and much more. Local breweries Rurban Brewing and Humble Beginnings also participate.

“This is the market’s 7th year of operation. We will have over 40 vendors to start up. We are all about local, local food, local farmers, local craft persons and artisans, ” added Mr. Benjamin. “We have hundreds who visit the market on a weekly basis. In addition to local residents, we welcome visitors from western Quebec, Ottawa, Gatineau and elsewhere.”

In addition to the great food and products, the Cornwall Kinsmen Farmers’ Market will also feature some great events this year on market days, starting with a soil preparation, planting and seeding event on June 2nd.
