What Are Harvest Markets?
Harvest Markets are community-led farmer’s markets, connecting people to fresh, local produce and each other. Local groups host Harvest Markets across Chatham-Kent each week, offering a variety of freshly purchased produce.
How Do Harvest Markets Work?
It's simple! Find your nearest Harvest Market. Stop by and pick up your choice of produce. Stay a while and check out the events, activities, and other vendors at your local market. Enjoy your day! EVERYONE is welcome at Harvest Markets, and no one is turned away.

Launch A Harvest Market!
Ultimate Flexibility: You choose whether to host your Harvest Market every week, every two weeks, or once a month; what time of day works best for your community; and where you want to host it. The goal is to increase access. Even hosting a Harvest Market once a month can be beneficial to your community.
Ultimate Produce: We cover the cost of produce, purchasing directly from local growers and wholesalers across Chatham-Kent, ON. This means the produce is always fresh, diverse, and available for your community.
Ultimate Support: We believe that celebrating your community is one of the best parts about the Harvest Markets! We help with all your admin and marketing needs to ensure your Harvest Market runs smoothly, has all the marketing materials you need, and your community's stories are heard.
