COVID 19 RESPONSE:
The Johnson Farmers’ Market is considered to be an open/unenclosed space so customer masks are preferred but not required. We ask that you point to rather than touch the product you wish to purchase and let the vendor put it in a bag. Payments may be made in several ways; cash to each vendor, debit/credit with those vendors exhibiting a sign, or debit/credit at the Market Store by the exit.
There are 3 outdoor picnic tables available for social clusters following APH Covid 19 guidelines.
Pre-ordering is available from any of the vendors but will only be reserved until 11:30 on market day, after which time the product will be put out for sale to the public.
Welcome to the Johnson Farmers' Market
A shopping experience that offers a wide variety of fresh vegetables and seasonal fruits, honey & honey products, maple syrup and maple syrup products, delicious baking, stone ground flour, alpaca yarns for knitters and weavers as well as socks, mitts, local meats, farm fresh eggs and northern Ontario cheeses.
The 1200 sq.foot timber frame addition added in 2015 to the existing pavilion (Desbarats site) thanks to FedNor, our local Mennonite community, Township of Johnson and the organizing committee. The additonal space contributes to relaxed atmosphere and true country hospitality.
Come and visit our Farmers' Market where Freshness is measured in hours.
The Johnson Farmers' Market provides much more than produce and products directly from our farms to the customers within a warm inviting country atmosphere. It is a meeting place for people who value fresh home grown produce and quality home products and who understand the value and importance of buying directly from the source. It is a celebration of what's local - truly a great shopping experience.
GROW IT! BAKE IT! MAKE IT!
LOCAL Community: If we can't source the produce/product within Community then we look to Algoma, then possibly
NORTHERN ONTARIO: If we can't source the produce/product in Northern Ontario, then possibly
