The Prospect Communities Farmers Market launched the first market on April 23rd, 2017 at the Prospect Road Community Centre, located at 2141 Prospect Road in Hatchet Lake.
We have been busy over the winter planning for a bigger and better third season for the market, and we are excited to announce that we will be opening on Sunday, June 2nd with the new adjusted hours of 10:30am – 1:30pm biweekly.
The Farmers Market is a project of the Resource Opportunities Centre, a not-for-profit, community development organization that serves the many communities along Route 333, from Goodwood to West Dover.
Our vision: to encourage & promote a welcoming, innovative, thriving community
Our mission: The ROC is a community-based organization dedicated to sustainability and community development through the delivery of diverse recreational, educational, cultural, social and technology related opportunities.
In support of our vision and mission this project is a collaboration between the ROC and the Spryfield and District Community Market & we work to maintain a strategic partnership to ensure that our markets complement each other & provide an opportunity for a weekly market that just happens to be shared between two locations.
Our markets run on the opposite Sundays, making local products available to both sections of District 11.
The markets will be operated as separate entities and we will strive to maintain separate identities, while sharing some vendors, and hopefully guests.
Our Goal is to provide the best market for both vendors & the Prospect Communities while improving access to fresh, local food & reducing social isolation for many of our residents.
