About Us - Johnson Farmers' Market Desbarats

Johnson Farmers’ Market is a seasonal entity founded in 2007 thanks to a partnership developed between the vendors and the Township. Vendors invited to participate are located in the geographical area encompassing Iron Bridge to Echo Bay. The Market provides an opportunity to local farmers, bakers, artisans and craftsmen to sell their products.

Located in Desbarats next to the Community Centre, it operates from June until Thanksgiving. A timber framed pavilion was erected in 2009 with a 1200 square foot additon added in  2015 as a permanent home for the market. Presently, the vendors offer a wide variety of local products including vegetables, preserves, honey and honey products, delicious baked goods, a selection of alpaca yarns, rovings and other products, maple syrup and maple products and boxed frozen beef. Rounding out the shopping experience is a selection of Northern Ontario cheese, locally roasted coffee, cuts of locally grown beef, lamb and pork (no added growth hormones, antibiotic free, GMO Free grain finished) wooden furniture, iron works and crafts. In addition, one vendor is certified organic maple syrup and blueberry producer.

For 2017, the market is again opening a satellite market in Bruce Mines, at the waterfront located behind the Bavarian Inn, Wednesday afternoon from  5 - 8 for July and August.

The collective is administered by a Market Manager on behalf of an administrative committee.
