About the Market
The Non-Profit Farm and Market in Clarenville is a seasonal Market, consisting of 35 booths offering fresh, local produce, flowers, prepared foods, and handcrafted items. The Market hosts a wide range of family and nutritional programs, live entertainment, community service & Non-Profit booths, master gardener consultations, youth activities, and food demos.
The Farm and Market Includes: - Six raised growing beds, growing specialty crops. Each bed measures 80 feet long. - A greenhouse for starter plants and seasonal crops. - An operating Elliston style root cellar. - A raised outdoor platform for performances and socializing. - A children’s play area. - Off highway parking.
The trading area includes the greater Clarenville, Terra Nova, Bonavista, and Trinity Bay regions. The Market is open every Saturday from June 22 to December 14th, from 10am – 3pm. It is located on the TransCanada Highway next to the Clarenville Inn.
Our mission is to develop a Non-Profit social enterprise in rural NL where crops are locally grown, harvested, and sold via a vibrant Farmers’ Market. We exist to create new jobs so that people and tourists from the greater Clarenville area can grow, harvest, and sell, local fruits, vegetables, crafts, and seafood. The Market also seeks to help new Canadians and clients from the Ability Corporation to find gainful employment and integrate into our local communities.
