What is an Eco Market?
A local market that supports high quality, handmade and sustainable products or services and brings new positive energy to the community..
High Quality: Products must be beautiful, reusable, and made to last.
Handmade: Preferably local, made by either the seller or the crafter/artisan, must be handmade or home grown.
Sustainable: Practice of manufacturing has to be in a sustainable nature, products cannot be made in a way that imposes high carbon footprint. Grown products must be no-spray, organic.
The Eco Market humble beginnings started in the Artisan town of Yarrow. With a committment to showcasing local artist as well as promoting eco-education the small market grew to a movement offering local sustianable products and services set up for our customers' convenience.
At the Eco Market we’re not interested in being just another Farmer's or Artisan Market, we’re passionate about mindful consumerism. We’re a community organization dedicated to promoting a sustainable food system and to providing you with simple ways to do the same.
As you explore the market expect to find seasonal fruit and vegetables (organic & low chemical input), free range poultry and eggs, rare breed meats, fish, hand made pasta, artisan cheeses, condiments, organic bread, olive oil, honey, flowers, herbs and much, much more.
You will also find us to be the home of talented Artisan and Crafters who have made art of sustainable products and materials. Soap and Cosmetics crafters are required to be registered with Health Canada, ensuring we are suppoting the highest level of manufacuturing integrity.
Local Services range from Massage Therapy, Photography, Landscaping, Green House Workshops, Green Cleaning Services, Eco-Friendly Construction, Non-profits, Eco-education, Health and Wellness.
