Farmers Market To Start On November 28th

November 23, 2015

The Department of Parks announced that every Saturday, starting November 28th, the Bermuda Farmers’ Market will be hosted in the JJ Outerbridge Building at the Botanical Gardens from 8.00am until 12 noon.

The Farmers’ Market offers local farmers, fishermen, gardeners and artisans a venue to sell produce, farm-related items, plants and locally-made crafts directly to residents and visitors.

“Over the years, the Farmers’ Market has increased both its’ clientele and the number and variety of vendors at the market,” explained Director of Parks Lisa-Dawn Johnston.

Slideshow of a Farmers’ Market held in December of last year:

“The Farmers’ Market Committee believes that a combination of factors including having a café/relaxation area, providing child-centered activities, and featuring a variety of community artists and special interest groups, will make the Farmers’ Market the place to go on a Saturday.

“We are thrilled to be able to host such a wonderful community event amidst the beauty of the Botanical Gardens.”

The Minister of Public Works Craig Cannonier said: “We hope that this partnership between the Farmers’ Market and the Bermuda Botanical Gardens will ensure the steady growth of the market by providing a centralized location at which local producers can sell their goods and services and also where the community can come together to socialize and interact with each other.

“The presence of the Market at the Botanical Gardens is the ideal marriage of two entities which complement each other both functionally and aesthetically.”

The Market will be open each Saturday [except during the Annual Exhibition], commencing November 28th, 2015 through June 25th, 2016. The hours of operation will be 8am until 12noon.
