WELCOME TO THE ONLINE CHARLOTTETOWN FARMERS' MARKET!
Created and managed by the Charlottetown Farmers' Market Cooperative, our online marketplace is your one-stop shop for local foods and artisan goods produced by your favourite Market vendors.
Featuring a wide assortment of local products, including fresh produce, dairy, meat, baked goods, artisan foods, prepared meals, pottery, crafts, and more, our online marketplace makes it easy and convenient for you to shop local and support our Island food producers and artisans.
The Charlottetown Farmers' Market Co-operative is delighted to offer this online marketplace in co-operation with many of our Market vendors. Our goals are threefold:
1) to continue providing the Island community with access to healthy, locally-produced food and artisan wares through an easy and efficient online marketplace;
2) to provide our Market vendors with the opportunity to continue serving their customers and ensure that the money spent on their products goes back to them; and,
3) to ensure the Market Co-operative continues to serve as a hub for high-quality food and meaningful connection between Market vendors and customers.
By ordering from our online market you are not only supporting our Market vendors but also helping to build community and keep the Co-operative running during these unprecedented times. Thank you for your support!
OUR 'HEALTHY HARVEST' FEE
There's no beating around the bush, building and managing our new online market requires money and ongoing human resources - from the folks managing orders behind the scenes to those friendly faces delivering bags to your car each week!
From the outset, our focus has been on creating an online marketplace that serves our customers' needs while making sure as much money as possible goes directly to farmers, food producers, and artisans that are selling their products through this platform.
To this end, we are asking you to support our vendors by sharing the costs associated with running this online marketplace. By paying a $5 'Healthy Harvest' fee when you place an order with us, you'll be reducing the administrative costs that would otherwise be borne by the vendors. We thank you for your understanding and support for our local food producers.
We also want to assure you that the Cooperative itself is NOT generating any profits from this initiative - our focus is on providing our vendors with the opportunity to generate sales through this online marketplace.
