The Barrhaven Farmers’ Market will opening Saturday May 22nd for its fifth season. The market will once again operate at the Log Farm on Cedarview Road, north of Barrhaven.
“As a family we are very excited, as we look forward to the 2021 season,” said Larry Orr. “We started the farmers’ market as part of our plan to demonstrate to people where their food comes from. Our Log Farm is not only a fun place to visit but an actual operating farm. Over the past couple of years our market has grown steadily and last year was especially encouraging as more and more people recognized how important and rewarding it is to support and buy local. We are thrilled that we will have 25 to 30 of the best vendors every week this year.”
Orr said most of last year’s vendors are back, along with several new ones. “We have everything from starter plants both veggies and flowers to beef, pork and lamb along with all kinds of baking from pies and tarts to cookies and bread,” he said.
“There will also be a great compliment of hand made products to choose from. You can also pick up farm fresh eggs and maple syrup from right here on our farm. We will have wine vendors at the market again this year and new for 2021 Craft breweries will be allowed to offer products at markets. We are looking forward to seeing you this season. We will of course be opening with all the necessary COVID-19 protocols in place.”
The market runs every Saturday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. until mid-October. The Log Farm is located at 670 Cedarview Road with lots of free parking and there is no admission or appointment required to visit the market.
