The Frontenac Farmers Market returns to the parking lot at Prince Charles Public School in Verona this coming Saturday (May 12) for its 13th season. This year’s opening market is running in conjunction with the Prince Charles Public School Community Yard Sale. The Yard Sale is scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. while the Farmers Market gets underway at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m.

Market vendor and chair Laura Simmons said that this year, they are trying to broaden the community outreach and participation aspect of the weekly market, which runs until Oct. 27.

“We’re working with a number of not-for-profits in the Verona area and further afield,” Simmons said. “Our schedule isn’t quite set yet but we hope to have live music and some really fun kid and family activities.

“We’re trying to make it more entertaining and all events will be announced on our Facebook page.”

Simmons said there will be about two dozen vendors this season, with a couple of new ones and a number of returning favourites.

“Some of our members will already have greenhouse produce for sale and there will be plenty of seedlings available,” she said.

One aspect of the Market they’re looking to revive is sponsorships.

“We did have a few sponsors at one time and we’d like to do that again,” she said. “It would give us a little bit more of a budget for things like musicians and and events.

“If anyone is interested, they can contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and in return for sponsorship, we’ll include them in our advertising on site and through other means.”

She said anyone wishing to rent a space for a week can also contact her at the aforementioned email.

“Hopefully there will be a lot of interest this year,” she said. “We’re looking forward to seeing old friends back again and meeting plenty of new ones.

“And, we’ll be invoking sunny skies and warm temperatures for the summer.”
